Threats continue at northwestern BC college

THE Terrace RCMP are advising the public that the Northwest Community College has received additional threats.

We are working with the college to ensure the safety of the students and faculty. At this time the college is not being evacuated. Extra security measures have been put in place by the college, says Sgt Mike Robinson, non commissioned officer in charge of operations, Terrace Detachment.

On October 2 a bomb threat caused the evacuation of the college. An explosive trained canine unit was called in to search the college’s buildings and student residences, with negative results.

A second threat was received on November 22 and a third on November 26.

If anything suspicious is observed call 911 immediately.
