It may seem unusual to be wondering if Saskatchewan is at risk for any terrorist attacks, but recent events in London have many people on guard.
This past week, the RCMP, along with Premier Brad Wall, updated people on crime statistics in the province following those terrorist attacks overseas.
Saskatchewan’s threat level is considered low, but Saskatchewan RCMP assistant commissioner Curtis Zablocki says always keeping your eyes open at events — like Saturday’s pre-season Rider game, for example — does help authorities.
- Regina police confident in traffic plan for first-ever Rider game at new Mosaic Stadium
- Riders advising fans of certain things in advance of Mosaic Stadium opener
- Terrorism threat remains low in Saskatchewan
Zablocki says his best tip is to remain somewhat cautious.
“If you’re talking about attending large sporting events at stadiums and such, it’s exactly that: be vigilant and be aware of your circumstances,” said Zablocki.
He says events like tonight’s Saskatchewan Roughriders game should be enjoyed, but does say it’s important to notice if something or someone looks out of the ordinary and to report it immediately.
