Updated: Manitoba Legislature evacuated for a possible security breach

The Manitoba Legislature was evacuated this afternoon.

The evacuation occurred during today’s Question Period for a possible security breach.

Reports say the evacuation happened around 2:30 this afternoon.

Winnipeg Fire Department District Chief Barry Carpenter says a call came in about a suspicious substance, but nothing was found. He also says it was a "prank call or a false alarm."

People are now re-entering the Manitoba Legislature nearly an hour and a half after the building was evacuated.
