Apparently expelled student threatens York, professor

August 3, 2008

Last week, the Toronto Police Service increased its presence at York University's Keele campus after calls from a man claiming to be an expelled student, threatening to "blow up the school" and shoot people on campus -- particularly a professor he blamed for his expulsion.  News reports indicate that the faculty association is concerned they were not informed of the specific threat to one of their members, and were told only of a "general threat against the university." Last Friday, York reported things were "back to normal", but also issued a bulletin asking the university community to be vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour. Y-File | Globe & Mail
