Students and faculty at the Centre for Creative Communications, at Mortimer and Carlaw avenues, were asked to leave the building at 11:20 a.m.

Police arrived on the scene at 10 a.m. and shortly thereafter faculty were called to an emergency meeting and informed of the situation.

    Hi , I am a current student at the CCC in the Broadcasting and Film Program , little or no info was given to us at the time , i was in my first class of the day in a lab when all of the sudden my professor is yelling at us to”get out get out class is cancelled” we all scramble to grab our stuff and as soon as we leave the class i see cops all over the hallways , when I asked a cop what the trouble was I was told the campus was being closed for an “investigation” as I was leaving students were all saying that it was infact a bomb threat and of course thats what it turned out to be. I find it funny that this is the 2nd time an incident like this has occured involving centennial (not this campus ) in the past 2 months with the ashtonbee campus evacuation … Hope whoever it was that made the call into the school was caught and charged…

  2. I live across the street from the school, and was wondering why over a dozen police officers were wandering around the school. It would have been nice if somebody had at least bothered to tell us it might be unhealthy to look out our windows.
