Chateaugui police explained that young people used the new online phenomenon “confession” to articulate their threats on Sunday evening.

In the case of the Louis-Philippe-Pare school, some students chose to publish various threats to sow fear and confusion, ”explained Jenny Lavigne, a media relations officer with the Chateau City Police Department.
“Students who want to follow whatever action we believe to be an agnostic must remember. Any action is recognizable and recognizable, ”Agent Lavigne continued, recalling that the publication of threats could lead to indictments against their author.
