At approximately 2200 feet into the take-off roll, the flight crew observed a Sunwest Aviation Swearingen SA226-TC Metro II (C-FGEW) crossing runway 29 from south to north on Taxiway Alpha. The Metro II had been cleared to cross runway 29 to taxi to the northwest hangar line. Since the Metro II was more than 50% across runway 29 when AC221 made visual contact, the takeoff was continued, without further event.
