Much of the area was eventually closed off to pedestrians, with no injuries reported thus far.

The ice left a significant hole in the roof and led to the postponement of Monday's game against the Royals.

Falling ice forced Toronto police on Monday to close CN Tower, according to the Toronto Star, which added that falling ice caused a hole in the Rogers Centre's retractable roof above right field, and that snow was on the playing field inside.

The Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals will play a single-admission doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon starting at 3:08 p.m. "Relatively large" blocks of ice have been tumbling onto the streets and sidewalks.

Mr Comey also said he believed that Mr Trump was "morally unfit" to be president and that he treated women like "pieces of meat". He also spoke about special counsel Robert Mueller , who is investigating the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

And as if having to cancel a home game due to weather when you play in a dome, the Blue Jays really put their feet in their mouth when they tweeted a smug status poking fun at all the postponed games on Monday. More than 120,000 customers across much of Ontario remained without power. Six games in all were postponed Sunday, and at least three more Monday, bringing the total number for Major League Baseball games this season to 24, the highest amount since 2007 (per the AP), when there were 27 postponements through the end of April.
