Here's what you need to know for  Thursday, May 28, 2015.

Weather

A cloudy morning is expected to give way to a sunny afternoon, with a high of 25 C on the day. 

Seasonal averages for this time in May are 21 C for daytime high and 9 C overnight, so we are well above average for today. 

Transit

TTC service is running mostly on time this morning.

The elevator on the eastbound platform at Dundas West station is out of service, as well as the elevator from the entrance to the main concourse at Don Mills station is out of service. 

GO Transit trains and buses are running on time. At Burlington station, there will be no elevator access from the south side of the station until fall 2015 because of construction.

Toronto Pearson airport and Billy Bishop airport downtown are reporting that air traffic is moving on time. ​

Back-to-work legislation

A vote is expected at Queen's Park today on back-to-work legislation for high school teachers who were on strike. Teachers in the Toronto-area regions of Durham and Peel and the Sudbury-area Rainbow District returned to school yesterday after the Ontario Labour Relations Board ruled their strikes illegal.

But the Liberal government says it's still proceeding with planned back-to-work legislation as it would ban strikes in those boards for the rest of the school year.

Hydro One

The Ontario PC's are calling for the OPP to investigate allegations that Hydro One misled the government. Hydro One CEO Carmine Marcello says he's really disappointed to hear that the Tories have asked for a police probe, But he says if it takes a police investigation to get to the truth, "then so be it."

Captain John's says farewell

Captain John's restaurant, also known as the rusting ship M/V Jadran, is set to be towed away from its longtime Lake Ontario spot at the foot of Yonge Street on this morning. The defunct floating restaurant — which at one point was a popular dining destination in the city — was sold to the Marine Recycling Corporation (MRC) earlier this month.

Ports Toronto said if the weather's good, tugboats will begin towing away the ship at 10 a.m., work that's set to continue until noon.  ​
