Canada: 60 schools evacuated over ‘threat’

All schools on Canada’s Prince Edward Island are being evacuated due to a “potential threat”, police say.

Students are being taken to safe locations, where their parents will later be able to collect them, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement.

Prince Edward Island is Canada’s smallest province, with a population of 146,000.

Universities in Nova Scotia have also been evacuated, reports say.

Two campuses of Nova Scotia Community College – the IT campus in Halifax and Marconi campus in Sydney – have been evacuated due to bomb threats, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reports, citing police.

Cape Breton University has also been evacuated due to an unspecified threat, CBC says. It is unclear if events are linked.
