Change the CN Tower into a goal light!
This petition has been up for a few days, but I think it probably deserves a bit more attention; with enough votes, this can happen and would be pretty incredible to see.
There is no doubt that both The Toronto Maple Leafs and hockey in general are a very important part of the City of Toronto. And to be honest, we’re the biggest fans of hockey in the whole world!
Question: How can we show the world just how big of fans we really are, while also paying our respects to the boys in blue who got us here, and uniting the entire city, allowing them a way of following along with what is sure the be a very exciting playoff run?
Answer: WITH THE BIGGEST GOAL LIGHT OF ALL TIME: THE CN TOWER!!!
But seriously, imagine how incredible it would be to see The CN Tower Light up RED every time Toronto scored a goal! IT WOULD BE AMAZING!
I’m not sure who it’s going to take to get this done. Whether its the City, Budweiser, The CN Tower, or MLSE; just get it done!
Please sign and share this petition so that we can get every fan of the Leafs to sign this!
LET’S LIGHT THIS LAMP UP!
Unfortunately, the “powers that be” (instantly reminded of Bennett Brauer skit by Chris Farley on weekend update) had something to say about this petition:
It’s an exciting time for Toronto as the Toronto Maple Leafs enter the NHL playoffs! Like the rest of Toronto, the CN Tower has been anticipating and planning for this, and we are delighted to make a very special lighting announcement.
The CN Tower will be showing their support for the home team by lighting Toronto Maple Leafs blue each night the Toronto Maple Leafs play a playoff game. (Please note, if we have a previous commitment on the night of a playoffs game, the Tower will be lit blue at the top of each hour for 12 minutes when the light show usually takes place.)
Throughout the year the CN Tower lighting program recognizes dozens of citywide events, charitable events and causes, seasons and special holidays. We do receive various creative requests for special lighting at the CN Tower. Each opportunity is carefully considered to ensure a consistent and equitable approach to all the important causes and occasions.
We are pleased to announce this special lighting and join Toronto and Maple Leafs fans everywhere in celebrating the Toronto Maple Leafs!
But officials have told Newstalk1010 the chances of turning it into a goal light, are slim to none.
At time of writing, this has 15,518 votes. It needs 34,000 more. Easy.
As far as the “Officials” saying that this is not going to happen, I say that’s weak sauce. Bare minimum, the CN Tower should be blue and white 24hrs a day, with it turning into a red strobe light for Leaf goals. Right? RIGHT?
