Excerpt from www.portstoronto.com:

Billy Bishop Airport has a fully functioning, on-island fire hall and emergency response centre, over and above the Toronto Fire Service, staffed by more than double the number of emergency personnel required by Transport Canada, with state-of-the-art equipment and vehicles which have been upgraded and expanded over the past few years, including new firefighting trucks, a mid-size pumper and a Fire Command vehicle.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

The Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport pedestrian tunnel is a pedestrian and utilities tunnel between Toronto Islands and Toronto. It passes under the Western Gap and connects Toronto island airport, on the Toronto islands, with the mainland. The project began in 2012 and after several delays, was completed in the summer of 2015. After the completion of the tunnel, ferry service remains to allow vehicle access to the airport and islands.

The tunnel project connects the airport terminal to the Toronto mainland at Eireann Quay, at the foot of Bathurst Street. The project consists of a new pavilion on the mainland end of the tunnel, a 240 m (800 ft) pedestrian tunnel and a tunnel for sewage and water mains. The pedestrian tunnel has moving sidewalks. Elevators were also built at both ends. On the island side, an escalator has been constructed.

A consortium known as Forum Infrastructure Partners, composed of firms Arup, PCL and Technicore, designed, built, financed and will maintain the tunnel, which is free to use. Ground-breaking began in March 2012. Initially, the tunnel was estimated at $38 million, but this was revised to a cost of $82.5 million. It was expected to take 25 months to complete but eventually took 40 to complete.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Ornge (formerly Ontario Air Ambulance) - is the air ambulance and ground transportation service for the province of Ontario, Canada, and for the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (Ontario). The provision of ambulance services in Ontario is governed by the Ambulance Act, which states that the Minister of Health "has the duty and the power" to make sure Ontario is serviced by a "balanced and integrated system of ambulance services and communication services used in dispatching ambulances". Its headquarters are in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

The name Ornge is not an acronym, but is based on the colour orange of its aircraft and land ambulances. According to the organization, "The 'a' was removed from the name, partly to make people stop and take a second look, and also so that it could be trademarked."

In 2012 Ornge and its associated companies employed more than 400 people, including paramedics, pilots and aviation specialists. Ornge has its own aircraft and land ambulances, with 12 bases across Ontario. It also contracts some operations out to independent service providers.

The reflections of the lights on the glass windows made it looks like I am in a time tunnel.
