Every entrance to the Henri-Bourassa metro station reopened Tuesday morning following the discovery of a suspicious package the evening before.
Montreal police closed the western entrance to the station Monday evening after a passerby found an abandoned backpack containing vials of liquid.
Police examined the liquid overnight and determined it was not toxic, nor was it a harmful chemical.
Metro service was never interrupted, although several streets were closed during the operation.
