I earlier blogged about my concern that BC Place’s new roof, built at a cost of over half a billion dollars of public money, was leaking just before the Grey Cup game.  Now I am hearing that its managers are so concerned that the new roof cannot handle a snowfall that they are frantically pumping hot air and steam into the stadium building in the hopes that the snow expected Monday will melt before it accumulates and causes the roof to collapse.  Apparently the expensive new roof wasn’t engineered to accept the load generated by a snowfall and, unlike the old roof, it lacks a built-in heating system that can be switched on to melt the snow as it falls.  I guess we will soon see if these band-aid measures work.
