I did some Doors Open activities both today and yesterday, but my attention was caught by the scene this afternoon on Bay Street just south of its intersection with Adelaide. There, on one of the many streets being closed down for the filming of next year’s Suicide Squad film, a helicopter lay on the street, having crashed into a city bus. The movie’s Midway City is going to have a hard time of it, it seems.
