Toronto's stunning new sky bridge is now open

One of Toronto's most eagerly anticipated infrastructure projects is finally complete.

The dazzling, helix-like sky bridge at the Eaton Centre opened to the public this morning after a brief event with Mayor John Tory and representatives from Cadillac Fairview and Hudson's Bay.
