Ubisoft Montréal Situation a "Hoax"

CBC News has the latest on the Police Activity near the offices of Ubisoft Montréal mentioned earlier. They say that this turned out to be a hoax:
The 911 call that sent police and ambulances to the offices of a Montreal gaming company on Friday was a hoax, police sources have confirmed.

Dozens of police officers, some of them heavily armed, arrived outside one of the buildings used by Mile End Ubisoft — at the corner of St-Laurent Boulevard and St-Viateur Street, a neighbourhood in the central Plateau-Mont-Royal borough — around 1:30 p.m. ET. Ambulances were also at the scene.

Specialized tactical officers evacuated the building. But no threat was detected and no one was injured, police say. They say the operation began in response to a 911 call, now deemed a hoax, earlier in the afternoon.

The specifics of the hoax remain unclear.

Hoax? I thought this was officially called "Swatting" now, in the USA anyway. Attempted murder seems like a more apt description though. Even with the (slightly) less trigger happy Canadian cops.

That is someone speaking from the US perspective. This occurred in Canada, where police aren't politicised thugs that go around shooting everyone without consequence.
I don't have time to respond in depth to this drivel, but my time in Canada was marked by a depressing lack of law enforcement to the point I GTFO.

To add to what Mr Tact is saying. Here in the US we don't have a nationwide mandatory reporting for police involved shootings. Not even just the numbers of shootings that happened, let alone the facts of the incident. Every department has its own rules. Some of the states might have their own rules as well. So it's very hard to know precisely how many uses of force are unjustified. It's enough to make a lot of people very pissed though and distrust law enforcement entirely, apparently, so that's an issue.

Unfortunately the data is limited due to reporting restrictions imposed mostly by police unions. And even when there is reporting, in nearly every case where it turns out the shooting was questionable or outright unjustified that reporting concerning the incident is often not accurate. I don't know what the rates of unjustified shooting are, but they seemingly happen more often than they should. And if there has been one which wasn't initially covered up, I missed it.

Even if the chance of canadian police shooting someone is smaller in canada, doesn't mean swatting there should be without consequence or that it's harmless.

Got any evidence of this systemic police violence without consequence or do you just believe everything the antifa idiots want you to believe? Don't show me a handful of cases to prove your argument. I have a 100 justified shootings for every unjustified shooting. Go for unjustified shootings without consequence and your case grows thinner than union skin. Data please.

Where I live we call this swatting (dangerous, potentially deadly), and not a hoax (harmless, not deadly) - makes me wonder why the Canadian police says it like that... or the CBC for that matter

Oddly enough my first thought when I heard about this was... marketing for a new Rainbow Six?
