Just saw a camera crew around 12:45 at the corner of Scott St and The Esplanade in downtown Toronto behind The Sony Centre / L Tower complex.  They had a route marker.  Also an EMS and cop on standby.  Met a woman who said she gave up her taxi to a team that said they were heading to Cadbury-Adams (the candy company (?))

Talked to a camerman, who was recording a shot of Nathan Phillips Square. Mentioned that Amazing Race Canada will be here later... (1/2)

I don't think the rappelling is going to happen at Nathan Phillips Square (City Hall) as per earlier rumours.  That may be a decoy location.  Camera crew (in orange hardhats) and a sound man (with a boom mike) are set up on a platform at the base of the front face (Front St side) of the (under construction) L Tower (Yonge & Front intersection) right now waiting for teams to head back there.

A sighting from a women's volleyball coach in St. John's who flew from St. John's to Toronto en route to Calgary and saw TAR Canada at the Toronto airport. How did he not see them on the plane?

Kevin Manuel ‏@Kevmansj 13h
4am heading to the airport #calgarybound #recruiting

Kelsey_x and WPs spoiling adventure so far....

So - without spoiling the final three racers here is what we've seen.
More picture and video when we can upload them.

Teams arrived from St. John's at 7am ish and were held back by production until 11:15.
They were instructed to go to the "L" Tower.

Kelsey saw one team and clue boxes at the tower (12:23) - the team told their cab to go to 277 Gladstone - which is the Cadbury Candy Factory Museum.
Clue box and race flag seen at Cadbury - along with snarly production... interesting that crew was dressed in "clean room" garb.
Pictures of clue box...

What we suspect is the last team left Cadbury by cab at 15:34 - on their way to the zoo. Tried to follow their cab, but they lost us - last seen going east on Gardiner Expressway at Dufferin.

WP, Here's some background  info just to avoid some possible confusion if it should come up. The show Suits is filming in Toronto at Bay and Adelaide St., wherever that is. Probably almost over by now.

Kyla Sheridan ‏@kylairene87 13h
@olv #Suits is filming tomorrow at Bay and Adelaide in Toronto from 11am to 4 pm

Get ready to repel?

Nathan Philips Square is a tourist trap yet I'm here since apparently Amazing Race Canada's filming here.


Then again, she doesn't actually say she's seeing anything happening.

I think, if that is true, it kills the city hall rumors

I have reason to believe that Amazing Race MIGHT BE in winnipeg today. I have a friend who works at Tims who got a phonecall from Amazing Race, and they ordered a bunch of donuts and coffee to pickup for May 25. It may just be for the crew I'm thinking but that means contestants will be in Winnipeg right??
