The organisers of the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal have decided to scrap the free access day for the fans on Thursday, because of the threats that have been made against the event. While some student bodies are trying to play down the threats, others are apparently planning action.
“Considering the various disruption threats made public recently, the free admission and the naturally openness character of the open house day, revealed some risks that we could not neglect,” said Francois Dumontier. “Under these circumstances, cancelling the ‘Open House’ day was the only action we could take. Unfortunately, for the fans and our spectators, it was impossible to escape from such responsibility.”
