The Luminous Veil cover-up

The Globe and Mail reported that "Keith Noble figures the Bloor Viaduct gave his cousin Donald an extra 10 minutes. That's about how long it took for Donald Noble to take the bus from the viaduct to Leaside Bridge. He got off, 'walked over to the railing and went over' -- within view of the bus driver who dropped him off."

A study published in the British Medical Journal in July 2010 found that "although the barrier prevented suicides at Bloor Street Viaduct, the rate of suicide by jumping in Toronto remained unchanged...This finding suggests that Bloor Street Viaduct may not have been a uniquely attractive location for suicide and that barriers on bridges may not alter absolute rates of suicide by jumping when comparable bridges are nearby."
