MARACANÃ Stadium Maracana - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Doesn’t sound good!

National security officials have been notified that an underground tunnel was discovered near a venue for this summer’s Pan Am Games in Toronto, CBC News has learned.

The tunnel was dug in the woods near Toronto’s Rexall Centre and York University’s Keele campus. It was large enough for a person to stand in, at around 2½ metres in height, and was about seven metres long. The tunnel had lights inside, powered by a generator, and the walls and ceiling were reinforced.

Sources told CBC News that the tunnel was filled in by authorities.

A Toronto and Region Conservation Authority employee reportedly found the tunnel while walking near the TRCA headquarters at 5 Shoreham Dr. in mid-January. The employee, who was carrying out day-to-day activities, noticed a piece of corrugated steel in the woods, and when it was lifted, the tunnel could be seen about three metres down.

  1. Your CIA at work. Be afraid. Be very afraid of things that go bump in the night. Them ain’t the bodies of saints.

  2. “Citizen Four” (the Edward Snowden, NSA story) won the Academy Award for best documentary on Sunday.
    If you haven’t seen it you should.

  3. Reminds me of a similar occasion here in the wild west a few years back. A rancher stumbled upon a shaft dug about 3 meters straight down covered by a piece of plywood. Considering that it was about a mile from the nearest roads it was something of a mystery. Considering that it was located only a couple of hundred yards from a National Guard Armory, one that housed a Patriot missile battery, it caused more than a few raised eyebrows. After the initial story, one never heard any more about it.
