All Prince Edward Island schools evacuated over potential threat

From the Globe and Mail: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/all-prince-edward-island-schools-evacuated-over-potential-threat/article31982369/

From the article:

More than 19,000 students are being evacuated from all public schools on Prince Edward Island because of what police say is a “potential threat.”

RCMP say staff are taking students at more than 60 English and French schools to safe locations outside the schools, where buses are meeting them.

Sgt. Bailey said an anonymous fax from an unknown person was received by police. The fax warned of bombs planted in area schools. Police in turn warned schools across the province, and later searched all schools but found nothing.

"There hasn't been a suspect identified," he said.

Authorities evacuated and searched schools as a precaution, Sgt. Bailey said, but have found nothing to substantiate any threat.

School officials in PE.I. say they hope to resume scheduled classes tomorrow.


Still a developing story, but it's looking like an empty threat thus far. No explosive devices have been found yet, but searches are still taking place.

1. It's rare for P.E.I. to make the news

Sad, and extremely unusual, for it to be over something of this nature.
