RCMP investigates threatening social media post made against Acadia


The RCMP has launched an investigation after a threatening social media post was made against Acadia University this week. The threat follows on a previous shooting threat that was made against individuals and the university. Acadia Director of Safety and Security Patrick Difford advised the campus community that this latest social media post will be used as evidence “to assist an active Kings RCMP investigation,” and noted that the RCMP indicated that there was no “immediate threat or required action.” Difford said that Acadia will continue to work with the RCMP while enhancing monitoring and patrols. RCMP investigators have an “idea as to who it is that they’re looking for,” but are in the process of verifying and corroborating the evidence.
