A 22-year-old student has been arrested by Niagara police for issuing death threats via text messages. The suspect made comments about bringing a firearm to Niagara College’s campus and threatened a college student. Police say there was no imminent threat to students, the campus, or college employees. Meanwhile, at Western University, a former student was reportedly dragged out of a classroom after repeatedly violating the school’s COVID-19 vaccine policy. The student said that he was arrested by the Western Special Constable Service for the first time on November 10th, and for a second time the following day. Western indicated in a statement that 28 students have been placed on involuntary leave due to non-compliance, and that they have dealt with one individual requiring on-campus intervention.
