Police forces across the Lower Mainland went on high alert Friday evening as Transit Police hunted the would-be bomber, and swept TransLink’s whole rail system to ensure no more bombs threatened passengers. Three false alarms were triggered throughout the system as staff raised alerts about objects which are not believed to be connected to the real bomb or copycat pranksters.
“There is no doubt that this was a serious device, although somewhat unsophisticated in nature, and was extremely dangerous,” Transit Police spokeswoman Anne Drennan said Saturday.
The bomb was spotted by a passenger on an elevated SkyTrain track Friday afternoon, and later removed and exploded in a safe place by an RCMP bomb squad. This is the first real bomb ever to threaten TransLink infrastructure

...Like I said, doesn't hurt to be cautious. Just because these have all been false alarms doesn't mean one of them won't be a real one in the future. I would prefer to be on the side of caution at this point.
