CN Tower closed, Rogers centre roof leaks due to falling ice

TimCNTowerML CN Tower Closed After Chunks of Ice Fall, Blue Jays May Postpone Game

Earlier on Monday, the Blue Jays said via Twitter that they were "working to fix damage" to the roof of their stadium, originally named the Skydome when it opened in 1989.

The team had to quickly backtrack on that tweet after the damage to the stadium before eventually announcing that Monday's game would not be played. It is adjacent to the CN Tower, an 1,815-feet-high structure that is among Canada's most recognizable landmarks.

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?

The Toronto Blue Jays have postponed their series opener against Kansas City because of chunks of ice crashing down from the nearby CN Tower following a weekend of freezing rain. Authorities say no injuries have been reported.

A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and road collisions across Ontario.

The Blue Jays had hoped a return to their domed stadium would provide a respite from the relentless storms that led to a pair of postponements in Cleveland over the weekend.

Six games were postponed Sunday across Major League Baseball and two more (Orioles-Red Sox, Cardinals-Cubs) were postponed Monday, bringing the season total to 23.
