Canadian Armed Forces buildings both in the Greater Toronto Area and in London were put in a hold and secure Wednesday because of a threat against the military.
Lt. Nadine Abou Rjeily, a public affairs officer with the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), told CBC Toronto that a threat was made in the area around 1:30 p.m.
“As a consequence, military establishments in the GTA were placed in a hold and secure state of readiness,” Rjeily said.
She did not elaborate on what the threat was.
The hold and secure was lifted around 4 p.m., she said.
A man is now in custody with London police, Rjeily said.
