Here's what you need to know for Thursday, June 4, 2015:

Weather

A high of 24 C is expected today, with clouds setting in around the noon hour and a 40 per cent chance of showers later this evening. 

Transit

TTC service is running smoothly so far this morning. The elevator from the eastbound platform to concourse bus level at Dundas West station is out of service. 

Similarly, the elevator from the concourse to the new northbound Yonge Line platform at Union Station is out of service. 

The 59 Maple Leaf bus route is diverting eastbound via Weston, Church, George, King, Elm because of construction at Church Street and Rosemount Avenue. 

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. ​

Schooner on the move

A 19th-century schooner discovered at the site of a new condo development downtown will be moved to Fort York today. The developer says a crane will lift the piece of Lake Ontario history onto a truck before making a delicate journey to its new home. 

The move is expected to begin around 9:30 a.m., and it will take about half an hour to get the schooner loaded onto the flatbed.  

More MPPs in Ontario

Premier Kathleen Wynne is expected to announce several electoral reforms that will include boosting the number of seats in the legislature.

Government sources say Wynne will lay out plans today to match federal riding boundary changes, except in northern Ontario where the Liberals want to maintain one additional provincial seat.

That would give Ontario 15 additional members of the provincial legislature after the 2018 election because of its growing population.

Hostile call

A Brampton man accused of making a hostile phone call to police in Oklahoma won't face charges.

Police in Peel Region say they questioned the man on Monday but found no reason to charge him. They allege he called the Oologah police department and made derogatory remarks about a local officer who had been shot in the head a few days earlier.

Peel police say they brought the man in mostly to check on his mental well-being.

Humber College stabbing

The hunt is on for a suspect after a man was stabbed in a parking lot at Humber College in north Toronto.

Humber officials say it happened after 5 p.m. yesterday. The victim was taken to a trauma centre.
