Aaaaaaaand now Metrotown... The heck? This is no kid with Halloween fireworks.


RCMP contain explosive device along SkyTrain line
VANCOUVER(NEWS1130) -SkyTrain is not stopping at Metrotown Station due to a police incident.

Unconfirmed reports suggest a suspicious package was discovered during a security sweep of the east entrance to the station.

Translink says trains are running through the station without stopping. Customers going to Metrotown will need to get off at Patterson or Royal Oak.

Metrotown Bus Loop is still open at this time, and Coast Mountain Bus Company has called in shuttle buses to assist with heavy passenger loads.

The bomb-squad has been called in.

No word when the situation will be resolved.


That is such BS, whoever is responsible for this should be arrested sooner rather than later. It will be scary to take the skytrain if this keeps happening.

I bet $100 the guy who did it will be at the Wiz Khalifa show.
And takes the Skytrain to get there.

Here are a couple messages I got from a buddy who works for the sky train.


If you guys listen to the news i started quite the comotion at work.



Found a bomb on the tracks. The real thing it sounds like. At home digesting how real this actually was makes me reflect and be thankful for the things i have. Hopefully it was a sick joke. But if not and someone is out to hurt people i couldve been one of them. The world is a crazy place!! Look around and be thankful boys!!
Im gonna go have a beer!!!

I think I speak for everyone when I say that this must be the work of muslims. Close all Lower Mainland mosques and middle-eastern restaurants.


I liked the NP commenter's sarcasm so much better:

Let's all guess who might have done this; some Anglicans from Vancouver Island would be my guess.

I bet it's someone tired of Vancouvers plan to reduce vehicle traffic/expand bike and transit.

I'm guessing it's either a fare evader who got ticketed or a disgruntled ex-Translink employee.

Speaking of skytrain.... What happened between Scott Road and Gateway? Was it really just a problem with the track?

Someone commited suicide at the metrotown station today, got hit by a train or something as far as I heard.

And now this

“@ScanBC: #NewWestminster Skytrain Station is closed due to a possible bomb threat. 'Red Bravo' declared. Station being evacuated.”

What a messed up week!

Aren't there security cameras around these places? Might be a good idea. Prevent something before it happens.

People probably just trying to stir up trouble.

I'd be willing to bet a substantial amount of money that all of these are bogus, and that they're all from different people.

People get into that "blow stuff up" frame of mind at Hallowe'en, which is why I hate fireworks.

I, too, think it's probably nothing much to be concerned about and likely pranks more than anything.

If we stop taking Skytrain, the terrorists win.
If I have to wait ten minutes for Skytrain delays, the terrorists win.
