unconfirmed, uncorroborated piece of information relating to the GTA.



The vagueness of the tweet is scary!

Be careful out there if you're in the core today.

CBC News article

Toronto police are sending more officers out to patrol the CN Tower and surrounding downtown area Thursday after receiving what the force calls an "unconfirmed, uncorroborated piece of information."

Police spokesman Mark Pugash sent an email to CBC News stating: "as a result of this information, you will see an increased number of police officers throughout the city and specifically in the downtown core."

Pugash didn't reveal any more details about what police have learned.

CBC News reporters have already spotted a large police presence around the CN Tower and Rogers Centre area.

Meaning a terrorist attack? I read it too and didn't pay much attention thinking it is related to all too frequent gun violence this summer.

There never will until the supposed threat is cleared. They don't want a panic.

Go on about your lives, don't worry about any of this. You can't let anything like this get to you, speaking as someone who grew up in Belfast in the Troubles.

Is there any real reason they had to say anything in the first place?

The word is they are on the lookout for a Cement Truck or Dump Truck which could be used to run over people or might be filled with a flammable substance and driven into a building? Stay away from dump trucks and cement trucks and be safe people
