A suspicious package found at Vancouver's Waterfront Station prompted the transit hub to close down Tuesday morning while authorities undertook an investigation.

Metro Vancouver Transit Police said the item in question turned out to be "scrap metal," and have closed the investigation.

Authorities say Strider, a police dog, was used to help rule out explosives in the suspicious package.

Waterfront Station was closed for a period Tuesday morning, and SeaBus service was temporarily suspended, however, the station has since reopened and SeaBus service restored.
