WINNIPEG – Schools in the Winnipeg School Division received a threatening fax this morning.
The threat was similar to those received in Prince Edward Island, Halifax and possibly a few locations in the US.
All schools were evacuated in PEI as a safety precaution.
Constable Rob Carver says it was a different story here in Winnipeg.
“Schools in Winnipeg were not evacuated,” says Carver. “We did have quite a number of officers working to ensure that the threat was unfounded and at this point, that’s what we’re leaning to.”
Police aren’t specifying what type of threat was sent.
