A little before 10 pm Sunday evening Halton Regional Police responded to the area of Joseph Brant Hospital for a bomb threat that had been received from an anonymous person. While police were investigating, information was received that similar threats had been made to two institutions in Hamilton as well.

Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital is a little like the provinces economy: a little the worse for wear and tear and in need of a fix up. Problem is the economy has to get much better before the hospital refurbishment can go forward,

Police received a threat of a bomb placed at the Joseph Brant Hospital – nothing was found.

Hospital staff were immediately notified, and nothing suspicious was found. Members of the Criminal Investigation Bureau will be continuing the investigation.

Similar threats have recently been received in P.E.I., Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Nunavut.

Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is asked to contact the Burlington Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-825-4747 ext. 2316, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (Tips) through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting your message to 274637 (crimes)

We live in different times – it would be a mistake to sluff these threats off as coming from cranks. No need to get warped by the threats – but we now need to be much more vigilant.

    Wonder if it’s the same sicko that sent bomb threats to schools….hope they find whoever is doing this. How easy it is now to send these things across the country by the stroke of key.
