Torontonians have fun in the sun on Victoria Day

The Toronto area was blessed with good weather on Victoria Day, allowing residents to enjoy a variety of activities under sunny skies.

Some people spent the day on boardwalks or at the beach. Others took the opportunity to spend a day riding the rides at Canada's Wonderland, just north of the city.

For those who drove north toward cottage country, they knew they would have to head home when it was all over. Fortunately, the Ontario Provincial Police say things have been better on the highways this year than last.
