The long weekend is here!

There are plenty of fun things to do around the city over the Labour Day weekend but there are also a number of road closures to watch out for.
The city says that four events happening around Toronto will result in road closures this weekend and a “significant amount of road work” will further complicate getting around the city.
As a result, residents are being urged to utilize public transit where possible.
As well, here is a list of what’s open and closed on the holiday Monday:
Open
  • Most tourist attractions including the Toronto Zoo, CN Tower, The Ontario Science Centre, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Art Gallery of Ontario
  • Most malls including Toronto Eaton Centre, Square One, Vaughan Mills, Promenade, Yorkdale, and Hillcrest
  • The TTC will be running on a holiday schedule and GO Transit will be running on a Sunday schedule
