Extra, Extra: Terminal A, SkyDome’s Birthday, and a Leaders’ Debate

Every weekday's end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.

  • The Terminal A building at the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, opened in 1939, was in use until recently, but has since been mouldering away. But it will moulder no longer! In 2016, it will reopen as a multi-use building, with a museum, art galleries, and restaurants. This island airport–related news is exciting in and of itself, and also because it does not yet appear to involve any jets or jet-related controversies.
  • The Rogers Centre SkyDome turns 25 today—it was the first stadium to feature a fully retractable roof, and you can watch the structure come together in this time-lapse video. Happy birthday, Rogers Centre SkyDome!
  • It seems that at tonight’s Ontario election debate, Tim Hudak will be going for “nothing exciting,” Kathleen Wynne will be trying to appear fresh but trustworthy, and, whatever happens, Andrea Horwath will be exceedingly well prepared. Check in with Torontoist‘s live debate fact-check (starting at 6:30 p.m.), and see how each leader fares.
