More Falling Glass in Downtown Toronto

Glass falls from the Shangri-La hotel for third time in two years.


For the fourth time in two years, glass has fallen from the Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Toronto.  It happened Thursday morning at the hotel at 188 University Avenue.  Police say the glass came falling down on the roadway but fortunately no one was injured. 

Police had to briefly shut down University Avenue at Richmond as they cleaned up the shattered glass and investigated the cause. 

It was September of 2013 when a 53-year-old man was injured after he was hit by falling glass that came from a residential unit above the hotel.  Glass also fell from a unit in the Shangri-La in January, 2013 and last November, but no one was injured in that incident.

    Enough already. Fix this building. When a slab fell off of First Canadian Place, they re-did the entire building. That needs to happen here.

    Am I honestly the only person who wants to see the people responsible for installing these windows disciplined somehow?! How is everyone else being so blase about GLASS raining from the SKY?!

    If I had access to the records from when that building was put up, I'd be going over them with a fine-toothed comb to get the name of the lazy union asshole who installed that glass, and he'd be famous by the end of the week.
