Approximately one hour ago, a person was spotted climbing to the top of the arches in the Square, in order to get a better view of the parade.

He was soon joined by multiple other people, who climbed to the top of the neighbouring arches.

On-site spectators have since been told that the parade would not continue until the climbers came down from the arches.

Brad Ross, Chief Communications Officer for the City of Toronto, reminds everyone that climbing objects is extremely dangerous — not just for the person climbing, but those below them.
