A Boston College assistant professor faces charges in Canada after he allegedly threatened to bomb ore mines this month during a geological research trip with five students near the remote Labrador region, officials said. Dominic Papineau, 35, has been suspended by the university pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings, BC spokesman Jack Dunn said. In addition to threatening to damage property, Papineau also faces charges of possessing a hunting rifle without proper permits and possessing a “small quantity” of marijuana, Quebec authorities said.
