University Campus Reopened

The U-N-B Saint John campus at Tucker Park was shut down for much of yesterday and last night following the discovery of a suspicious package at the Athletics Centre. 

An evacuation was ordered until it could be determined if the package was dangerous. Divisional Chief Mark Wilson says a special unit of the RCMP was called in from Halifax and firefighters remained at the university for 9 hours. 

It turned out the package was not dangerous with shredded paper inside. City Police are now investigating.
