Winnipeg Schools Cancel Trips to Belgium in Wake of Explosions

A number of Winnipeg high schools have cancelled plans to send students on European trips after deadly explosions rocked Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday.

Collège Jeanne-Sauvé in the Louis Riel School Division has cancelled its Brussels trip, along with the Pembina Trails School Division.

Students from Oak Park High School were set to leave Tuesday afternoon for Brussels, but have also cancelled.

At least 34 people were killed in three explosions in the country, including two at the airport and another at a metro station.

Airports around the world are now on high alert.

“I am outraged and deeply saddened by the news that so many have been killed and injured in terrorist attacks targeting the people of Brussels, Belgium,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau partly said in a statement.
