Helen Oster issues an apology:

Actually, I have a BIG apology; I completely mis-read an email from our purchasing department. We have NO official notification that this is discontinued – we just can't get any at the moment.

I do apologize for any misunderstanding or concern that this has caused.

Helen Oster, the Adorama customer service ambassador has confirmed that the 70-200 f/2.8L IS has been discontinued.

No word on the replacement.

Hopefully this isn't some kind of inside joke I don't know about.

CR's Take
I placed a call to Canon Canada's national order desk and they have none in stock. There was also no ETA on a new shipment. No ETA on a current product from Canon is a rarity.

Thanks Ed

    That make sense Dave. I didn’t consider the video factor, but yes — now that you pointed it out — Canon will no doubt be working on a Panasonic like lens with continuous iris and silent focussing etc.
