Trudeau attends Mississauga rally in bulletproof vest due to security threats


In a Liberal re-election campaign rally held Saturday evening in Mississauga, reported threats prompted Justin Trudeau to attend in a bulletproof vest.

Multiple sources indicate that the event, which was held at the International Centre, had to be delayed due to unspecified security threats.

While Peel Police and RCMP attended for security purposes, police have not confirmed the nature of the threats at this time.

Several people, including Trudeau’s opponents Jagmeet Singh and Andrew Scheer, have made comments condemning the threats and thanking the involved officers for their help.

Trudeau himself appears to be unfazed by the incident, thanking Mississauga in a tweet following the rally’s conclusion.
