Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

DETROIT — More than 850 peo­ple have signed a pe­ti­tion ask­ing for Detroit’s NFL sta­dium to turn off its blue night­time roof light­ing. The Detroit Free Press re­ports that 23-year-old Margo Dalal of Detroit started the pe­ti­tion on­line Tues­day, say­ing Ford Field’s roof is light pol­lu­tion. The blue glow be­gan last Au­gust as part of a $2 mil­lion sta­dium ren­o­va­tion adding LED light­ing with change­able colours and images to the roof. Dalal says the sta­dium broke the city’s il­lu­mi­na­tion or­di­nance, but the Detroit Lions re­sponded say­ing Ford Field fol­lowed mu­nic­i­pal pro­to­col by get­ting all nec­es­sary per­mits for the lights.
