Toronto Police monitoring reports of possible terror attack

TORONTO - Toronto Police say while they are not responding to American reports about a possible terror attack in Canada, they are monitoring the situation.

“We currently have no comment on the RCMP’s report or newspaper articles concerned,” Const. David Hopkinson, a media relations officer, said Thursday.

However, he said, “The Toronto Police Service takes public safety very seriously” and “we are ever vigilant to threats of all nature directed at the people of Toronto and the rest of Canada.”

Police are being asked about potential threats following Canada’s decision to send fighter jets to engage ISIS in Iraq and an NBC report that Canada was mentioned as a possible location for a terror attack.

Much of the world is reeling following a number of beheadings of innocent people in the Middle East.

There is work being done to keep Torontonians safe, Toronto Police insist.

“We regularly liaise with security agencies, police services (both federal and provincial, foreign and domestic), government agencies and private industry in our search to keep our community safe,” Hopkinson said.

At this point, Toronto Police have no immediate plans to comment further.

“The results of the information we gather and operational strategies we undertake are shared with the community where appropriate,” Hopkinson said.
