Montreal police were at Concordia’s Loyola campus to investigate a call concerning a bomb threat received by the university Wednesday morning.

Montreal police were at Concordia’s Loyola campus to investigate a call concerning a bomb threat received by the university Wednesday morning.

The suspicious call came in at 10:25 a.m. and was later deemed to be a false alarm.

“There’s no danger to the community and it’s over,” said Concordia spokesperson Chris Mota. “Everyone is safe.”

The police operation ended at 12:25 p.m. and focused on securing the entire west-end campus, according to SVPM spokesperson Daniel Fortier.

“We used procedure as usual, so police officers verified the outside of all buildings, security guards checked inside the building for anything suspicious,” said Fortier. At least one police sniffer dog was seen on campus as well.

Mota said the police took the appropriate measures.

“The police and the university have an obligation to make sure everything is safe,” Mota added.
