Officials have beefed up security around Charlottetown and there is an officer patrolling the grounds of the legislative assembly in the city following an attack on Parliament in Ottawa earlier today.
Sergeant-at-arms Allan MacDonald said he has been keeping up to date on the shootings in Ottawa.
Although no one in the Charlottetown is on lockdown, security has been increased, he said. RCMP and city police have added patrols.
“The deputy chief and extra patrol officers have been taking extra shifts patrolling around the city,” MacDonald said.
Extra security is in place around the airport, federal veteran’s affairs building and other public buildings in the city, he said.
