On a Wednesday afternoon, panic and precautionary measures swept through the Greater Toronto Area as reports of bomb threats prompted the evacuation of four educational institutions. Toronto police swiftly responded to the threats received by Kipling Collegiate Institute, Lakeshore Collegiate Institute, and Western Technical-Commercial School, necessitating the early dismissal of students and a thorough security sweep, all enacted out of an abundance of caution.

Meanwhile, in Burlington, Halton Regional Police initiated similar evacuation procedures at Nelson High School as they launched their own investigation into a bomb threat. Fortunately, no injuries were reported in any of these unsettling incidents. However, crucial details regarding the nature and source of the threats have not yet been disclosed by the authorities.

Earlier, the Ontario Provincial Police said they were investigating multiple bomb threats that had targeted schools and other facilities in northern and eastern Ontario.

The OPP said the threats included a demand for payment.

“As a precaution many targeted schools and facilities have been closed while the investigation continues,” OPP said in a news release.

“Parents are encouraged to contact their schools or school boards for more information. In addition to local officers, the OPP Cybercrime Investigations Team is engaged.”
