Ottawa police evacuate hotel; cite ‘possible threat’


Ottawa police evacuated an east-end hotel as a precaution early Wednesday to investigate what they call a “possible threat.”

Police said a threat was made by a “suspicious male” who had possibly checked in at the Chimo Hotel east of downtown near Highway 417 and St. Laurent St.

A hazardous material team was sent to the hotel to investigate the alleged threat.

The Chimo Hotel website says it has 256 guest rooms.
