September 14, 2021
The University of New Brunswick’s campuses were evacuated and closed on Friday due to a ‘possible bomb threat to campus.’ Police reportedly began searching UNB’s Fredericton campus at 12:30PM, and UNB evacuated buildings “based on their policies and procedures” around 20 minutes later. People were blocked from entering the campus and those living in residence were told to shelter in place. CBC reports that most officers had left by 5PM, and that the campus was closed until midnight. St Thomas University and New Brunswick Community College were also evacuated. All institutions have since reopened. CBC | CTV News (NB)
