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?
