Nothing to indicate loose asbestos, says university
An investigation is being conducted to determine exactly what fell out of some small holes in the Thompson Rivers University gym during International Day at the school.
Christopher Seguin, the university's vice-president of advancement, said about two tablespoons of insulation fell out through the tiny holes, likely the result of the gym being filled with people there for the International Showcase, which included a variety of exhibits and cultural performances.
Seguin said the gym will remain closed until the material is identified.
"There's nothing to indicate it's dangerous," he said, referencing concerns about asbestos.
"We're simply taking every precaution."
