CapilanoU closes North Vancouver, Lonsdale campuses due to threat

Capilano University closed its North Vancouver and Lonsdale campuses on Friday due to what an alert on the university’s website described as a “targeted, specific security threat.” Global News reports that the decision to close the campuses was made after CapilanoU staff learned that a student had made threats against another student and a CapilanoU campus. “Violence, intimidation and bullying is unacceptable at Capilano University,” read an email from a CapilanoU spokesperson, who added that the authorities were notified. CapilanoU stated that it does not believe that there is an ongoing threat to students; the university anticipates that it would be open as usual on Saturday.
