No idea, but I have wondered about that myself. My guess is it has something to do with WAVE, the deep water cooling infrastructure that heats and cools many of the downtown bank towers. I'd like to know as well...

Is it looking east from the spit? If so - it's the Ashridges Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant new outfall:

The wastewater treatment plant outfall is the point at which the effluent (the fully treated wastewater) is discharged back into Lake Ontario.
A new outfall is being built to improve capacity and better convey the effluent from the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant (ABTP) into Lake Ontario.
The outfall includes:
  • a 14 m diameter shaft, approximately 85 m deep
  • a 3.5 km long, 7 m diameter tunnel, mined through rock beneath the lakebed
  • 50 risers to disperse treated and disinfected effluent into Lake Ontario
Tunnelling operations will be supported from an onshore shaft.
The risers will be drilled from in-water barges.
Timing and Budget
Construction will span 2018 to 2024.
View construction notification for all current projects.
