Police Arrest Ontario Man Charged With Threatening Trudeau
TORONTO (Sputnik) - An Ontario man has been arrested following an investigation into threats made against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a campaign stop, the Waterloo Regional Police said.
“On August 31, 2021, Waterloo Regional Police began an investigation into alleged threats made towards Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a campaign stop in Cambridge,” the police force said in a statement on Friday. “As a result, police have arrested a 32-year-old Kitchener resident. He has been charged with two counts of Uttering Threats.”
The incident in question occurred August 29 in Cambridge, Ontario.
