Last week in Captured Lies, Bailey and Guy were in Edmonton hoping to gain some answers only to find that one of the men trying to kill them, darn near succeeded. Now faced with a tough choice, Bailey decides to trust Guy and agrees to head east to Ontario with him. The really scary part for her is that if he is telling her the truth, she’ll meet her family for the first time in almost thirty years. Can you imagine how scary that would be?
Something I didn’t mention last week was that Edmonton is the capital of Alberta. There will be a quiz at the end of all these postings. 🙂
So Bailey and Guy have now boarded a plane at the Edmonton International Airport and are headed to Toronto. In 2012, Toronto Pearson International Airport handled 35,000,000 people. Wow that’s a few. Ironically, my daughter was even one of them. In comparison the Edmonton International Airport handled 6.3 million in 2012. Ironically my daughter was one of them as well. The Edmonton Airport has undergone some massive building and restructuring so I’m sure that number will go up. I love what airports do for us, allowing us to fly wherever our heart desires but they are something to navigate, aren’t they?
The real name of the Toronto Airport is the Lester B Pearson International Airport, which it was name after our 14th Prime Minister.
Guy and Bailey land at Toronto Pearson International Airport, the largest and busiest airport in Canada. Not long after Bailey and Guy land there, Guy is busy talking with his private investigative partner from Knights Associates. While they’re talking, Bailey is grabbed from behind and is being forced at knife point to go with the man. Quick thinking on her part, creates some chaos but allows her to get away and to catch up to Guy and Graham. They immediately leave but realize they aren’t as safe as they had thought they’d be.
Toronto has been around since the ice age. Okay, well it wasn’t called that back then but they do say that people have lived there since just after that period of time. So it’s a little old. The urban community only dates back to 1793 when the British colony of ‘Town of York’ was settled. It became the city of Toronto in 1834. Today Toronto is the largest urban center in Canada and is the capital of Ontario. (https://www.toronto.ca/toronto_history/)
Neat picture hey?
Next week, I’ll talk more about Ontario as the finale for Captured Lies occurs about an hour outside of Toronto in wine country.
