Operations at Billy Bishop Airport have been suspended Saturday afternoon due to a suspicious package deal, Toronto police say.
Police say they have been referred to as shortly earlier than 4 p.m. ET to the Toronto Island Airport Ferry Terminal to examine a suspicious package deal on the mainland.
In a tweet, police say the realm is being evacuated and all airport operations have been suspended.
Police say the service’s emergency disposal unit is heading to the scene.
A coaching train was held at the airport from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to take a look at protocols, procedures, communications and planning for emergency and security-related incidents. But a spokesperson with Toronto police instructed CBC News the suspension of airport operations is unrelated to the workout routines.
