So yesterday, in an effort to remind people that the Pan Am Games are being held in Toronto, the organizers attempted to blow up the CN Tower.
Well, not really.
Last night at around 8pm, smoke billowed out of the observation deck because incompetent game organizers had decided to test the opening ceremony fireworks without warning anyone.
The ensuing smoke exceeded what anyone predicted, expected or intended. I saw it 35 kilometres away.
Ironically, of all the things that have gone wrong with the Pan Am games, this is probably the least expensive and least harmful to taxpayers.
