CN Tower closed after reports of chunks of ice falling, Rogers Centre roof leaking


The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday. It's the first cancellation at Rogers Centre since a game against the Royals was called off following a collision between two panels of the stadium's moving roof on April 12, 2001.

Well, that tweet didn't age well, and it was actually deleted shortly after their roof was pierced by ice from the CN Tower. It is adjacent to the CN Tower, an 1,815-feet-high structure that is among Canada's most recognizable landmarks.

The closure around the CN Tower has been expanded and includes the sidewalk on the south side of Front Street, which is closed from John Street to Blue Jays Way.

Toronto's game against the Royals is clearly in question as the Blue Jays investigate whether they can actually play today.

" The Toronto Blue Jays are now working with CN Tower and Toronto Police Service to assess the conditions around Rogers Centre and the viability of playing tonight's game against the Kansas City Royals", The Toronto Blue Jays said in a tweet issued Monday around 1 p.m.

It's only the second time in the stadium's history that the team has had to postpone a game.

It's one thing to have the Royals' home game against the Angels postponed because of the cold, but you'd think that their game played in a dome would go off without a hitch, right? Authorities say no injuries have been reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one auto was struck.
