Whether you like Justin Trudeau or not, I hope everyone will agree that this appalling. As Gerald Butts said today, there are 3 children under the age of 7 living in the house. Apparently Sophie Grégoire and the kids were asleep, and Justin was in another province at the time.
While Canada is a relatively non-violent country, we need to increase the amount of RCMP protection our leaders receive. This brings back memories of the man who broke into Sussex Drive and tried to get Jéan Chrétien back in the 1990's. Luckily nothing violent happened in this case.
Justin Trudeau's Family Home Broken Into While Wife And Children Slept
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's home in Ottawa was broken into overnight, his office confirmed Saturday.
"Early [Saturday] morning, the Trudeau family discovered that their family home had been broken into. Ms. Grégoire-Trudeau and the children were asleep at the time of the incident, and Mr. Trudeau was working in Winnipeg," a statement from spokeswoman Kate Purchase said.
Everyone in the family is safe, and nobody was harmed, she added. Both the Ottawa police and the RCMP are investigating the incident.
Trudeau told CBC Saturday his family was shaken by the incident.
Although The Ottawa Citizen cited an Ottawa Police source saying that a note on the back patio had been left advising the owners to keep their doors locked in case of theft, HuffPost was told the note was "threatening." A source with close knowledge of the incident described it as "very serious." Nothing, however, was stolen.
