Seven more speakers have been removed from Tim Hortons Field after they appeared to be at risk of falling into the stands.
Last week a 150 pound speaker fell into the east stands thanks to a cracked braket and a failed safety cable; luckily the stadium was empty and no one was injured.
An engineering firm was hired by the city to check “anything up in the air” that could be at risk of falling – including speakers, lights and the scoreboard.
They found seven other speakers with cracked brackets, similar to the one that fell.
Ancaster Councillor Lloyd Ferguson says not only were there bracket problems, but the speakers should have been tethered better by a thick chain or cable, and weren’t.
The city is installing temporary speakers in their place which will be up by Friday, when the Tiger-Cats host their first pre-season game against Ottawa.
