“Robo Cop” on Queen Street and other odd scenes on Toronto’s avenues


This photo was taken on Sunday 21 October 2012 at the intersection of Queen and Yonge. The downtown Bay Store on the southwest corner is visible in the background. A motorcycle is being towed by a trunk with a camera mounted on it for the movie “Robo Cop.” In the film, the scene will be advanced at high speed to create a chase scene.  I wonder if the actor who actually plays the role of Robo Cop is the person on the motorcycle.

This is the scene at the intersection of Brant and Adelaide Streets (Oct. 2012), where the roadway has been dug up to repair the sewage system. The digging has exposed the mass of wires below the roadway. I never imagined that so many cables and wires were buried beneath the streets of the city. I would hate to be the repair person who had to make sense of these wires.
