Extra, Extra: Suspects Charged in Terror Plot, TTC Recommends an Outsource, and ET Hams it Up Around Town

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

  • Two men have been found guilty on all but one charge involving a terror-related plot to derail a Via Rail passenger van. The Star reports that over the six-week trial, the jury heard more than 20 hours of secretly-recorded conversations captured by an undercover FBI agent, who was the prosecution’s key witness. The paper also reports that both men face a maximum life-sentence in prison.

  • On the heels of yesterday’s announcement that TTC head Andy Byford was firing two TTC execs for bungling efforts to complete the Spadina subway extension, a TTC report recommends a third party take over the overdue, and over-budget, project. Of the four options the report lays out for completing the six-stop extension, the most expensive of these leaves the project’s management under TTC control.
  • Finally, it appears that E.T. has been making his way around Toronto. The brainchild project of photographer Cameron McClelland has seen everyone’s favourite Spielbergian extraterrestrial posed against a bevy of Toronto landmarks, from the Financial District to the Annex. He looks strangely at home here, to us.
