BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER: BC Place officials yesterday said that a "small flood at BC Place Stadium won't dampen the excitement" of the February 12 Opening Ceremony at the facility. The CP's Jim Morris noted water "poured through [the] stadium's aging roof last week causing a minor flood." But Podmore said, "It's not a concern at all. We had a minor incident. Some water did come through a vent, a couple of hundred gallons. It wasn't much in context of BC Place" (CP, 1/19).
