HEC Montréal, the affiliated business school of the Université de Montréal, was evacuated Sunday morning after someone called 911 and claimed to have placed a bomb in a school building. Several exams were being held Sunday morning as part of the summer term and about 100 people had to be evacuated. No suspicious object or package was found during a police search, and the school was reopened around noon. Exams are being rescheduled. Montreal Gazette | Canadian Press
