The exercise involved approximately 300 members of the airport community, partners and volunteers playing the role of protestors, blocking an access road and testing the response to a security breach. Other participants included Peel Regional Police and Transport Canada.

"Safety is our number one priority at Toronto Pearson and we always want to make sure our skills are sharp in order to respond to emergency situations that may arise in the airport environment," said Craig Bradbrook, Chief Operating Officer for the GTAA. "I'm very happy with the way our employees and partners responded to this exercise, working together to maintain safety and security. We also learned many valuable lessons that can be used as we strive for continuous improvement in our emergency response with the safety and security of everyone at the airport top of mind."

The GTAA typically runs one full scale and one tabletop exercise per year to test protocols, procedures, communications and planning for emergency and/or security related incidents. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Transport Canada provided an exemption and full scale emergency exercises were not held in 2020 or 2021.
