Here’s what the Western Gap looked like on March 1: Frozen solid.
Then on March 4 CommunityAIR posted an article on BBTCA safety. The article contained the photo.
This how the ice in the Gap looks today after a tug boat was out there doing extensive ice-breaking.
Our observer noted: “I have not seen so much ice broken around the airport as I have witnessed today.”
Maybe PortsToronto is listening after all. Or maybe PortsToronto will claim that the ice breaking is part of standard operating procedures and the timing was just a coincidence.
Did PortsToronto really have to wait that long until before breaking up the frozen Gap?
