The Jays' account then tried to follow suit Monday thanks to the Rogers Centre's roof, but then had to delete that tweet after their own game came into question thanks to falling snow and ice from that roof and from the neighbo (u) ring CN Tower.

WATCH: Torontonians have been warned to avoid the area around the CN Tower as ice has been seen falling from the structure.

Barricades have been set up on the south side of the tower. After all, Rogers Centre has a retractable dome that comes in handy on days like Monday - when it's cold and raining and feels nothing like mid-April.

Ice damage has been observed on several buildings in the area.

On Monday morning, the Blue Jays announced they were working with CN Tower staff and the Toronto Police Service to assess the conditions around Rogers Centre and determine whether the game can be played.

As the victim was loading mulch into his auto , deputies say White jumped in the front seat and drove away with his daughter. The young girl was able to escape the vehicle before 31-year-old Thomas White drove out of the parking lot.

There have been no injuries reported yet.

The Toronto Blue Jays said a freezing rain storm over the weekend collected ice on the CN Tower.

We will continue to assess the situation and provide an update shortly.

By Monday afternoon, more than 120,000 customers across much of the province remained without power as the weather system transitioned to drenching rain in most areas.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution for the remainder of the day, as messy conditions persist.
