Suspicious package shuts down Broadview subway station for hours

Broadview Station has finally re-opened after a suspicious package shut down the area for hours this morning. 

Reports of an "unattended package" around 6:30 a.m. forced the TTC to suspend service between St. George and Woodbine Stations at the height of rush hour. 

Helicopters were spotted hovering over the scene as Toronto Police's Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear (CBRN) team examined the package. 

While service resumed for most of Line 2, subways had to bypass Broadview station for several hours. 

Commuters were forced to take shuttle buses between Pape and Castle Frank stations, and buses from Broadview were diverted to Donlands Station. 

The packaged was "deemed not to be hazardous" by Toronto Police around 11 a.m., and service has resumed to Broadview station. 

This is the third incident in the past four days where the TTC has experienced a major closure or station evacuation due to an emergency.
