"I call myself a bee guardian. My job is to make sure the YYBeeZ colonies have a comfortable home and access to diverse food sources. I got into beekeeping because of my children, because research I did online suggested that local raw honey might help combat their seasonal allergies.

Working with honey bees is a therapeutic experience. You can sit beside a hive and watch amazing moments where bees come and go every second of the day. A beehive is a super organism and each bee is tasked with a particular job, which changes each week of their lives. Watching bees land with all the weight on the body is like watching a helicopter landing on a ship in the ocean.

Because of YYBeeZ, people who work or travel through the airport or live in the Toronto Pearson community can learn how these little pollinators have a huge impact on our food source and why we need to ensure their population grows."

Tyson Plett - CATSA Plus is amazing or the European system as I call it. YUL has it and I experienced it there and I can tell your first hand that you never feel rushed to disrobe and unpack. It is a very chill system that most definitely reduces wait times. I had like 10 people infront of me but I still got through in less than fifteen minutes, maybe less than ten. It is quick and efficient!! YYZ this is awesome that you are putting this in!

Chris Fuhrmann - I traveled in May and part of this was already in place (there were no e-gates yet). It was a moderately busy day and it did indeed keep the lines moving quickly; I think it was the fastest I've ever moved through the screening process. My bag was not diverted to the search area, though, so I'm not sure how that part of the process works but it looks pretty efficient based on how it's described in the video.

2017 Toronto Pearson Street Festival cancelled due to weather

The Street Festival is being closed down after reports of convective weather approaching the area, which could cause unsafe conditions at the Festival grounds.

As a result, the Festival grounds will not be accepting any more buses and all attendees will be turned away for reasons of safety. We apologize to those who are not able to attend this year’s event and we thank you for your support.

At 1:10 p.m. today, check-in was closed to all attendees who had not yet arrived, with those attendees in line for check-in still allowed to access the Festival grounds. As a result of the changing weather, those who are in line for check-in will not be able to access the Festival grounds, either.

Toronto Pearson continues to plan community events and we will provide an update on future programming when more details are available.

Mark Fisher - This was the 3rd Street Festival I have attended and was the most disorganized event I have been too. The previous Festivals I had heard attendance was around 6,000. For this event I heard pre-registraion was around 12,000. So if you knew this many people had pre-registered a plan should have been in place. Plans should have been in place for parking and the line ups for getting into the event. I was fortunate to have arrived around 9 and had no parking issues. Yes there was a bit of a line up to get onto a bus. We arrived t the Festival around 10:00 am. Now this is where I have my issues. There was a tent by the back end where the photographers were. In the tent about 6 tables and it took an hour for chairs too arrive. At the Grand Stand Stage there were always chairs for people to watch this year nothing. With 12,000 people expected the tent for eating no where enough room. The choice of food available was the real joke. 4 food trucks if you can call them that. One with some sort of sandwiches , one with smoothies , ice cream truck and the Pizza place.Had a 20 minute wait to order then about another 20 minutes to get food. This was not the Pizza places fault but the planning of food by the event hosts. Would I go again yes I would as this is the best chance to get some photos that you never get the chance to get. There just needed to be more planning. It looked like the event was just thrown together without any thought. Unlike other Festivals that ran smoothly. Maybe you need to have a cut off point of registrants.

Mei Camilla Chan - To avoid traffic and parking space issue, my family and I took TTC for almost 1.5 hours (subway 1 hours and route 112C 1/2 hour) and then wait at the parking lot for almost 1.5 hours. Then I was informed that I needed to go home!! I understand that it is out of your control. However, obviously, the planning and coordination is very poor in this event. At the beginning, it is not participant oriented. I think you guys run this event based on management point of view but not participant oriented (no consideration to the participants or registers). You have preregistration but you told us that it is only for "counting how many people will join." If this way is feasible, is it funny for you and the participant to register 2 times? There are lots of follow up actions to do after the preregistration. You can offer the pre-registers for different time intervals to join this event so that not everyone come at the same time, like today the scene in parking lot. Hence, the redundancy of registration (PRE-Reg and REAL-Reg) will be eliminated. Secondly, as I mentioned, you guys are not customer oriented. Today is under heat alert (although thunderstorm later). Everyone is waiting in the parking lot at least one hour. If someone feels sick and need water, anybody helps? (I don't see any facilities here providing water or any shelter at the parking lot). Thirdly, this morning, the weather forecast already announced that there is risk of thunderstorm warming. As a member of management, you guys have to make decisive decision. If the event was cancelled in the early morning, the responses will be totally different -- people will feel disappointed but not frustrated! At last, I think that you guys have not plan b or plan c -- announce in the early morning that the event can only run half day before 12 due to thunderstorm risk / issue a voucher (or rain-check) for the next event instead of "asking us go home and register your monthly held event". More importantly, someone will think that "is the management competent to run the airport"? The poor planning, coordinating and responding in this events affects the reputations of the airport -- someone may have doubts if you have any emergency / contingency plan in case some bad things happened?

David Speicher - Just like the Avro Arrow...Great idea, but horribly planned and horribly executed. My 2-year-old son was excited to go to this. We registered a month ago, showed up at lunch time as it was encouraged to show up later if possible. Upon arrival, we were told by police that there was no parking and roads were closed? Dropped off 4 kids and parked a 20-minute park away. We waited 2 hours in line and were at the registration table when we were told the event was canceled due to weather. This event is the very reason why I hate visiting Toronto and despise Pearson Airport. Piss poor planning, poor customer service/relations, and just like the Liberal government, the more you support them the more in debt you get. What a waste of a day. I'm not surprised by this poor planning. My uncle and his brother-in-law had careers and Pearson, and they would be appalled at how poorly planned and executed this event was. You can't say that the support was overwhelming. If you knew how many people you could cater for, cap the numbers. People who were unregistered should never have been allowed in line. When we asked if we could get a gift bag they were giving away we were also refused and told the event was over. I did manage to speak with the event manager who offered me her name and phone number. Yes, we would like a tour, but my son was looking forward to seeing inside the plane and the fire trucks. I doubt that will ever happen. I am ashamed as a Canadian that this event was put on in support of Canada150. What as a disgrace to our wonderful country.

Karson Koo - It's not the weather! Your staff told me that the ground has too many people and you close the gate at 1ish! What's the point of pre registering and telling us to come in afternoon?? My 4 year old son is disappointed! Good job making him such #yyzstreetfest #disappointing experience!
6 days ago
Francesca Polacco - Really upset with your poor planning. Waited for one hour in the line to get to the parking lot, only to be told by the police 👮 officer that the parking lot was full (11:30 am). Parked on Commerce drive and walked back. Another hour and a half in another line up, only to be told evacuate immediately as you guys had received reports of thunder and lightening approaching. Understandable, because you have no control over the weather. The sign in process was not handled professionally at all. A whole bunch of papers with the names of everyone who registered for the event. 😳 This is 2017!!! If you had a laptop or an iPad, would that have not been more efficient??! Maybe faster??? Did you guys not think of it??? Which century are you guys from?? After the evacuation announcement, people approached the sign in tables, requesting the freebies. We were refused. In fact, the ladies put the bags under the table. Disappointing behavior 😒😒😒 After wasting so many hours in line-ups, the least you guys could have done, was give the disappointed people the souvenirs that they would have anyway received if the weather evacuation did not take place. Mismanagement and poor planning and hundreds of disappointed visitors. I know that I will not be attending any of your events in the future 😒

Sherida Hassan - Horribly planned. You advised people to prevent register to avoid disappointments. Let me tell you I along with many others were very disappointed. We arrived at 10 but still had to wait for over an hour to find parking then came the line up to prevent register.....2hours +. What's the point in preparation registering when we still have to line up to register? This isn't the first time you hosted this event but still it was a disappointment for many. Maybe next time when people pre register you give them an email ticket or something to by pass all the last minute attendees.
6 days ago
Liliana Ochoa - It was really inconsiderate how you guys worried about people's safety just until that point but no concerns about dehydration or heatstroke for lining up over 2 hrs under extremely hot weather. I also followed your recommendation of attending later in the day to "avoid" long waiting times and my son was so looking forward to celebrate his birthday at the festival! Only to end up with what he called the worst dissapointment EVER! Useless online registration, it made no difference at all and worst planning for an event that I've seen in Canada.
6 days ago
Janet Kiraly - Amateur planning. Waited 2 hours in line in the afternoon as per your e-mail suggestion to attend in the afternoon only to get to the front registration to be advised that the festival was cancelled due to weather. There was absolutely no services available for a 2 hour line wait, including maybe some water or stands to purchase drinks except two ice cream trucks with an hour line to get ice cream, especially since it was 30 degrees weather. I have no faith in the people that planned this event and will never attempt to attend again nor will support you. We were preregistered. Maybe your planners should have known to cap the registrations or make this a 2 day event. Horrible experience.

Faye Wynn - In the pre-event email, information in FAQ said "There will be separate registration lines for those who have registered in advance." Unfortunately, there was no separate line, and the wait amounted to over an hour or two depending on the time of arrival.

Michelle Michy - Poor planning we were almost at the registration after waiting for 2 hours under the heat of the sun, my kids were getting dizzy and irritable with the heat but we still went and then they told us the event was cancelled. Extremely disappointed, we registered a long time for this and had been looking forward to it then this.

Cecilia Chau - Very disapppinting since the email suggested visiting later to help with crowd control and so we listened to the instructions. And guess what, we show up to wait to find parking to find out about early closure on Facebook. On our drive here I've checked nonstop my email for any email notifications and there were none. Now we are stuck in traffic with disappointed children and they cannot comprehend my explanation to them why we can't get in. Registering early online didn't help at all.

Heard from staff at the event it would be at least another 2 more hours until we get into the shuttle, so left. Very disappointed. It was well organized but I just don't think they were ready for such crowds. Too much interested in the event..... hope I will be able to attend next year. Maybe make it a 2 day event?

Kayla van der Meer - Maybe next year you can cap the pre-registration to the amount of people you're able to have attend. We've been looking forward to this for months, and even followed your advice to come in the afternoon to avoid being turned away. We spent money taking the up express all the way here for nothing!

Vincent Hong - Don't bother coming. Line up is 40mims to get in. If you can find parking which is over 20min walk away. After that it's a 2 hour wait before you can get onto the shuttle. Ridiculous. As others have said the registered attendees were told to come in the afternoon. So now we're here and we can't even get in. Really bad organization of the event. If the demand was so high from registered guests, you could have planned much better than this. Tsk tsk

Laura Ginn - But you send out a email and tell all registered people to come later in the day for a better chance to get in and then you close it for the ones who waited...bravo

We are sad to share that the GTAA will not be able to offer Airside Tours at this year’s Street Festival. Because of the level of activity that we expect on the airfield, we won’t be able to run the Tour program without impacting those operations.

Fortunately, you will still have an incredible, up-close view of the airfield from the Festival grounds, where you can catch all the action. We also have more vendors, partners and performers than any previous year, making this a jam-packed summer-fun extravaganza!

We appreciate your understanding while we work to create the best possible Street Festival for you and your family, and we look forward to seeing you this Saturday.

Government can build a terminal (Black area) right beside Derry and Airport road (Green area) with underground parking to accommodate passengers. Its just my observation 😁

Pakesh De - I am unsure what feedback you want. You have no room to expand, the prices are literally the WORST in canada bar none, but it IS the most used and abused terminal in canada. If you want to expand you will be most likely tearing out the area past highway 5 and absorbing that, or paving over/work around etobicoke creek to the west.

"I spend my days in the office planning and preparing to participate in dozens of festivals and community events in the GTA. On the weekend, our team is out in the community at events like the Bread and Honey Festival and Celebrampton. I was hired from my co-op program at Seneca College, and I’ll be here all summer. I live in Mississauga and it’s great to be able to live and work in the same community.

I worked at the airport for two summers before this internship, and I liked the airport vibe, there’s always something going on and you meet a lot of interesting passengers and employees. I love being able to connect my education to the airport, it’s great how it’s coming together.

At these events, we share information and answer questions about Toronto Pearson. We like talking to kids and we’ve got some great activities for them - paper planes, activity books and our airport trivia wheel. The kids are really interested in learning cool facts like how we have a million honey bees at our YYBeeZ apiary. Seeing them connect with the airport is the best part of my day – they’re so interested!

This weekend, we’re hosting the Toronto Pearson Street Festival. We’re celebrating Canada’s 150th and showing off a behind-the-scenes look at the airport. It’s a free, family friendly event and we’d love to see all our neighbours there!"

"A long time ago I met someone at a house party and she said she worked at the airport. I used to go out on the roof of the terminal—back when that was possible—and watch the planes. I asked where she worked and she said the AOCC, which is what it was called back then. 'Wow that would be a really cool place to work,' I said. 'Well we’re hiring!' she responded. This is my twenty-seventh year at the airport—I’ve spent half my life here. People are really proud of what they do here. They’re proud to work at Pearson. I’ve worked eight different roles since I started and I love what I do now. I’m the airport’s tour guide, just like any city has a tour guide that talks about its great buildings and features. The only difference is that my buildings have wings and they’re moving. No two days are the same at Toronto Pearson, running tours for the public. My favourite part of the job is getting out on the airfield on a summer day, driving close to the planes and watching people work hard. I love being able to communicate to people how all the moving pieces fit together into a puzzle, seeing their eyes light up when they realize how much goes into the operation. Nothing is more satisfying than when an airport employee or a community member comes off one of my tours talking about something new they learned."
