The Canadian National Exhibition is assuring visitors worried about yesterday’s terror attack in Spain that a “robust” security plan is in place.
C-E-O Virginia Ludy say steps have been taken to secure the perimeter and grounds – and to monitor, control and restrict vehicle access to the site in Toronto – in light of earlier terror attacks in London and Paris.
Ludy says in a statement that they’re also working with intelligence agencies – and Toronto police and have hired security consultants to protect patrons throughout all 18 days of the exhibition, which opened today.
The CEO also also expressed condolences to the victims of yesterday’s van attack – that claimed 13 lives and left more than 100 injured in Barcelona.
