A recycling centre in Gatineau’s east end was evacuated on Tuesday afternoon after an employee there discovered an anti-personnel mine.
According to Gatineau police, the incident occurred at around 3 p.m. at Tricentris Centre De Tri at 45 rue Pierre-Ménard, in an industrial park south of the Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport.
A specialist from la Sûreté du Québec was called in and determined, however, that the mine was an unarmed practice dud belonging to the Canadian Armed Forces. A Gatineau officer, meanwhile, has been tasked with watching over the device until a CAF representative can pick it up.
