BC Place’s roof has collapsed for a second time. Back in the 1980s, the host of a CBC TV show called Switchback caused a bit of an uproar when he showed footage of the domed roof deflating.

Of course, it was later revealed that Switchback was playing the inflation of the dome backwards. Nice hoax. But, this time around, it would be pretty tough to fake a big tear in the roof
