The Manitoba Hydro building on Taylor Avenue was evacuated Friday after a suspicious package was dropped off.
A spokesperson with the utility tells 680 CJOB that employees were told to leave their offices at around 12:30 p.m.
Cnst. Rob Carver with confirmed the item raised enough concerns that employees called Winnipeg Police.
The person who sent the item is what made it concerning, according to Carver.
“There is some information, context of which I can’t give you at this point, that raise some concerns,” Carver said.
“It’s not enough that would lead us to believe that it is dangerous necessarily, but we have to take all appropriate precautions.”
The bomb unit and tactical unit were called in, but they eventually gave the all clear and confirmed there was nothing dangerous about the package.
“The bomb unit has an entire set of protocols that they use in situations like this,” Carver said.
“They have a mobile X-ray units, they have robots, there’s various strategies they use to determine whether or not there is any risk.”
Officers shutdown Taylor Avenue between Harrow and Guelph as a precaution. It has since re-opened.
