Police investigating threatening calls targeting Mississauga mayor
By Canadian Security
According to a recent story published in the Hamilton Spectator, police are investigating threatening calls said to be targeting Mississauga, Ont., mayor Bonnie Crombie. The calls were reportedly made on Aug. 5 and Aug. 8. Police actions taken so far include an investigation and a precautionary visit to the mayor's home. An email suggests the incidents could be examples of "swatting" — false reports made in an effort to deliberately tie up emergency resources.
