That's an Emerald Swallowtail - Papilio palinurus, native of tropical Asia. had to be an escapee from a nearby butterfly enclosure. The Toronto Zoo has an enclosure and was featuring Malaysian butterflies, including this one. - Frank Smodel

This butterfly is a swallowtail but it is either a strange hybrid (possibly a cross with an admiral?) or an exotic non-North American species.
