There was a earthquake today near 6.0 magnitude, around 2:00pm, lasted for 10 seconds, check it on the news broadcast websites

It was a 5.9 but it was centered in Virginia. It wasn't anywhere near a 6.0 by the time it got to Canada. I know that in Ottawa at least it was nowhere near as strong as the quake last year.

We were working in downtown Toronto, in a very large basement, with lots of power tools. Didn't notice.

Still too much construction going around to distingush between an earthquake and a construction vehicle.
