In just about 24 hours and a few minutes from now, Terminal 2 of Lester B. Pearson International Airport in Toronto will be closed forever.
I'm glad that when I head down to Seattle this coming March, I won't have to go through that antiquated terminal. I'm even more glad we have one less terminal to deal with when dealing with player pickups for the tennis tournament.
Replacing Terminal 2 is the new international pier at the new Terminal 1. I was lucky enough to have checked out the facilities at the test runs that were conducted late last year/early this year.
I'll get another chance to see how well the new terminal copes in real life crush conditions on the Friday just before the start of March Break. It is then we'll see whether all this constant construction, and obscene airport improvement fees that get tacked on to all airplane tickets was worth it.
