According to Lino Vieira, PSAC Ontario Political Communications spokesperson, there are 500 people attending the protest which began at 10 a.m.

Furthermore, a Greater Toronto Airport Authority spokesperson told media, “as of 11:30 a.m., we are experiencing minor disruptions in our departures curbside areas.”
