Burnaby RCMP is investigating an online threat that resulted in a precautionary lockdown at a secondary school in Burnaby.

Burnaby RCMP was made aware of an online threat regarding Burnaby Mountain Secondary on Thursday, February 2, 2023. Out of an abundance of caution, the school was placed into a lockdown.
