Police in the Greater Toronto Area have increased the number of officers at key tourist locations, such as the CN Tower and Canada’s Wonderland, after receiving information that authorities deemed as a potential risk to public safety.
Toronto police and York Regional Police did not reveal the source of the information or what it entails.
“We’re not going to comment on anything to do with the information received other than to say that it is information that causes us to determine a potential risk to public safety,” Insp. Michael Barsky told reporters during a news conference outside the CN Tower on Thursday.
In a tweet on Thursday morning, Toronto police said they received an “unconfirmed, uncorroborated piece of information.”
“I’m not going to comment on anything in relation to the information,” Barsky said.
“We commonly get this type of event where we enhance our police presence and today is not uniquely different.”
The CN Tower was seen Thursday with multiple cruisers surrounding the structure and adjacent streets.
