Yay to Toronto being visited!
Amazing Race Canada will likely rappel from Toronto City Hall rooftop
A proposal moving through Toronto City Hall right now could be giving away a future challenge for contestants on The Amazing Race Canada.
The agenda item has been deemed urgent and asks the city to give permission to Insight Productions to allow three people on a television show to rappel down the side of Toronto’s city hall.
“The Facilities and Management Division has received an application from Insight Productions to film an episode of a television show at City Hall on Friday, May 24, 2013,” the document reads.
“One of the main activities consists of three participants rappelling over the west tower roof onto the podium green roof of City Hall.”
Insight Productions is the production company responsible for The Amazing Race Canada, Big Brother Canada, Battle of the Blades, the Juno Awards and the upcoming series Never Do This At Home.
But the document is marked “urgent” and notes that filming will occur at the end of the month, pending completion of the appropriate paperwork. This narrows down the list of possibilities considerably, pointing squarely at The Amazing Race Canada, which is currently filming in Western Canada.
The motion currently before Toronto City Council recommends adoption the recommendations from the Chief Corporate Officer, who approves of the license. That document is here:
