Is the CN Tower shrinking?

My wife's father's brother (uncle-in-law?) worked on the electrical system for the CN Tower's exterior lights.  A former co-worker's uncle's father helped to install the antenna.  Small world just got smaller.

The Burj Dubai tower is now 555 metres (1,831.5 feet) tall and has surpassed the 553-metre- (1,824.9-feet) CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, which held the record for the world's tallest free-standing structure since 1976, developers Emaar Properties said in a statement.
