Unearthing The York University Tunnel Mystery

Quick recap for those who’ve been living underground recently:


York University, specifically, the Rexall Centre, or Canadian Tennis Centre as it’s also called, the intended site of the upcoming Pan American Games, is currently at the centre of international attention over a mysterious tunnel found in a wooded area nearby.  It’s not clear who constructed the tunnel or why, but this head scratcher continues to fascinate.  The clandestine tunnel was discovered on January 14th, 2015 and filled in by police a few weeks later.  Clearly, digging this tunnel took some time, but it’s not known when the construction on the tunnel occurred.
