  1. Misleading title, it wasn’t a “nuke” alert. That implies they accidentally warned us of an incoming nuclear attack. When the alert in question was for a nuclear generator, no nukes involved.

  2. TORONTO (AP) — *People throughout the Canadian province of Ontario awoke Sunday to a cellphone alert warning them of an “incident” at a nuclear plant just east of Toronto — only to later be told the message was a mistake*.

  3. Amber Alert! 50 year old Adam Splitter abducted. Suspect described as: “unstable, pickering and about to split”.

  4. Sounds like it low key wasn’t a mistake but they got the situation under control and are now covering it up

  5. Someones going to lose their job!

  6. The original message said there was **no cause for panic,** and the follow-up message said that there was **still no need to panic.**

    **So we didn’t panic.** And it turned out to not be a big deal.

    In reality this is a non-story, and the only people to whom it would be a source of concern are those given to frantic over-reactions, who unduly dramaticise and self-perpetuate their own paranoiac mistrust of government and industry — ie: Americans.
