Inspectors examining parking lot collapse

Postby web-chief » Mon Mar 05, 2012 2:58 pm

MONTREAL, QC - Inspectors are spending Monday carefully examining the debris left when a massive concrete slab collapsed in an underground parking lot adjacent to the Olympic Stadium.

The building in the Olympic compound nearest to the point of the collapse is actually under construction: the Saputo Stadium is being built for the Montreal Impact.

So far nobody has been able to determine if the construction of the new soccer stadium could be responsible for the collapse, but Quebec Tourism Minister Nicole Menard believes it could be responsible.

"It seems to be the cause. Now experts will tell us," said Menard on Monday, during a news conference at the Olympic tower.
