White Powder Scare In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on September 10, 2009

If you wondered why firefighters were hanging around the downtown courthouse in Ottawa yesterday, it was for a suspicious powder.

Firefighters went to the courthouse shortly before three yesterday afternoon to look at a white powdery substance that was found in an envelope. A Hazmat machine was brought in to see if the powder was hazardous and it turned out not to be.

There was a similar scare last year at Ottawa City Hall.
