Over 60 Schools & Universities In Eastern Canada Evacuated Over Bomb Threats

More than 19,000 students from over 60 schools, kindergartens and university were evacuated across the small Canadian province of Prince Edward Island this morning while police investigated a “significant” bomb threat.

In a statement to the press, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Police Sergeant Kevin Bailey said that an anonymous faxed letter had warned that bombs were placed in several schools, but would not say where or when exactly they would explode.

“The message stated the bombs had been placed in a number of schools and would be detonated today but did not specify a time,” said Bailey, “There is an active investigation to identify the person or persons responsible.”

All of the island’s 63 schools, including kindergartens, were evacuated, while Parker Grimmer, director of PEI’s board of public schools, explained the board had been contacted by law enforcement regarding a “a threat that was of a significant nature.”
