More cameras, tighter security at 2019 Calgary Stampede
More security cameras, metal detectors and bag searches will be in place at this year’s Calgary Stampede but officials says there’s no concern about any imminent attacks – it’s just a matter of public safety. During the 10-day event which begins Friday, the exhibition grounds will become the equivalent to Alberta’s third-largest city with more than 100 thousand visitors a day. Metal detectors and bag searches are conducted on those entering the grounds and last year main entrances to the park were blocked by large cement planters to prevent vehicle attacks. Calgary Police Service Inspector Paul Wyatt says it would be naive not to have measures in place considering what has happened elsewhere in the world. (July 3, 2019.)
