Extra security for Canadian Consulate in Chicago

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago police have stepped up security around the Canadian Consulate in Chicago in the wake of shootings in and around the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa Wednesday.

Chicago police are providing extra patrols around the consulate building. The consulate is still open for business but is operating under strict security protocols, which limit entry to those with specific business.

The Canadian Consulate in Chicago handles minor diplomatic business for Missouri, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.
