Mystery tunnel discovered near Pan Am Games venue

“…CBC News has learned that the tunnel, which has since been filled in by authorities, was large enough for a person to stand in, at around 2.5 metres deep and running about seven metres in length underground. The tunnel had lights inside and was powered by a generator.

It is unclear what the tunnel might have been used for, but CBC News has learned that national security officials have been notified. Toronto police will not comment on the tunnel, but are expected to hold a press conference Tuesday.

The Rexall Centre is set to be a tennis venue for this summer’s Pan Am Games and the Parapan Am Games. Authorities speaking on behalf of security for the Games, however, said there is no defined threat at this point, and that “the threat level, as per the federal government, remains at medium level.”


Knowing York Gaza U this was likely a credit course in Hamas tunneling techniques.
