Toronto Christmas Market beefing up security after Berlin
According to City News, Toronto Police don't believe the market's under threat. However, there are now concrete barriers surrounding the area as well as more paid-duty police officers patrolling the festive space.
"We are deeply saddened by what happened at the Christmas Market in Berlin. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and with the people of Germany," said Mathew Rosenblatt, the market's executive producer, in an email statement to blogTO.
He noted that safety-related consultations happened before the market opened and continued throughout its run.
"We have been speaking with our security team to evaluate the protocols that we have in place to protect our visitors," he continued. "These conversations continue today and we are making adjustments and enhancements to some of our current measures in light of yesterdayâs event, for the benefit of our visitors, exhibitors and retailers."
