War Measures Act?

Law prof James Morton asks an interesting question on the G20 summit in Toronto:

There doesn't appear to be a lawful authority to close Toronto to the public or to demand ID outside of the War Measures Act. Am I missing something or should we be expecting a proclamation?
Well, aside from it actually being the Emergencies Act since 1988, one does wonder.
