ONE SURE THING

Winnipeg Police aren't planning any major changes to their operations at the next Winnipeg Jets Whiteout Street Party in response to a driver in Toronto ramming people with a van yesterday, killing 10 and injuring 15.

Inspector Dave Dalal told reporters today that there's always a re-evaluation of operations after each event, but their tactics already attempt to deal with every type of threat and that won't change.

"We've seen these threats worldwide... The reason that they're so prolific is because they're hard to prevent and they're easy to carry out. I can tell you that it's in our minds, we are mindful of it, and our operational plan reflects our capabilities to deal with it."

He didn't want to get into specific tactics but says they have a layered approach, and there are both overt and covert tactics used.

"Our intent is to make sure that everybody's who's down celebrating has a safe environment to do so, so part of that is ensuring that there are no vehicles that will either deliberately or inadvertently get through."

Large vehicles have been parked at the party's four street entrances as barricades, which Dalal says have the advantage of being moved if a way through needs to be made for emergency vehicles.

Dalal says the police security presence at the parties will grow with the crowd. More than 15,000 people were at the last Jets street party.
