Passengers travelling to Lester B. Pearson International Airport were told to expect “significant delays” today due to the arrival of world leaders for the G20 and G8 summits. They weren’t kidding: wait times approached nearly seven minutes for chicken noodle soup and a cup of Red Rose tea at the Terminal 3 Toast! Café. “Wow, I waited longer for soup than I did to check in,” we thought, flipping though a copy of Vogue we purchased at the gate B12 newsstand after a lengthy browse.

Many in the café lineup were just happy to be killing time since they, like us, left the city with hours to spare out of fear of road closures, traffic chaos and increased security. Travellers on the 7:30 a.m. TTC Airport Rocket did report seeing OPP cruisers on the 427, but those officers could have been responding to reports of short lines at Terminal 1 Tim Hortons.
