Threats Against Women At The U of T

The U of T has received an anonymous threat against women, both students and faculty on campus, particularly in the sociology and women’s studies departments. We don’t have many specifics here but we do know security has been stepped up and the school is working with Toronto and Peel Police to track down the person responsible. The University of Toronto has warned its students, faculty and staff about the threats on Thursday and said it’s working with the Toronto Police Service and Peel Regional Police to find out who is behind the anonymous threats, made by someone using the screen name “KillFeminists.” Meanwhile, campus enforcement have increased their patrols, the university said. “We take these threats very seriously and want to ensure that we have a safe campus community,” U of T said in its memo. Toronto police confirmed they’re aware of the anonymous threats, which were made several days ago, and have assigned a detective to the case. Anyone who spots suspicious activity on campus is urged to contact police or campus patrol.
