Luminous veil to be set aglow for Pan Am torch relay

It's been a long time coming, but over a decade after it was first installed, the so-called luminous veil on the Prince Edward Viaduct will light up the night this July. The elaborate barrier will be illuminated for the torch relay of the Pan Am Games on July 4th, which should make for a spectacular sight.

You see, the Pan Am Games will actually bring cool stuff to Toronto. The veil will be adorned with two sets of LED lights that will make good on the name that was bestowed upon the suicide prevent barrier so long ago.

The veil has sat in darkness for years on account of a lack of cash to complete the ambitious installation. Looking for something to generate excitement, Pan Am organizers coughed up the dough to light up the night.
