VIA Rail tightens security after threat by mystery threat maker

Ottawa (AFP) – Canadian passenger railway Via Rail confirmed Wednesday it is beefing up security after having received a threat to train stations.

Specific aspects of the threat were not released.

Via Rail spokeswoman Marie-Anna Murat told AFP it appeared to be “unfounded.”

Still, she added, “VIA Rail has advised employees reminding them to be vigilant.”

As a precaution, the railway has also stepped up police and canine patrols “in certain stations” and continues to work closely with law enforcement agencies.

Gee I wonder who would do such a thing?

    “Be vigilant.”

    But don’t notice anything if the Religion of Peace(tm) is involved – that would be waaacist!

    • That should be the new Motto for Chief Saunders and the TPS.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Just you watch! People of the muslim persuasion will call police if they see a small group of nuns traveling by rail. Christians are so scary to “Canadians” nowadays…

    “The initial stage of the “War of the Kebab” began in rather strange circumstances …”

    Just more of that Islamophobia nonsense again. And Premier Wynne stated today that we should not speculate on the motives of that stabby muslim.

    • Really? Did that ignorant bitch really say that?

        Saw it on the Barrie CTV News.

    Another drain on resources, this is the way the muslims grind down our society.

    Amazing how before the importation of Muslims this sort of thing was unknown.
