According to a statement released by the Waterloo Regional Police on Saturday, formal charges have already been filed against a man who reportedly made threats against Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau during last month’s Cambridge campaign stop.
The Waterloo Regional Police disclosed that the incident occurred on August 29 when the Liberal Leader spoke before a crowd near 20 Lindsay Road in Cambridge. The authorities were able to pinpoint the man after reviewing videos of the event and conducting interviews with the witnesses.
While the man’s name is still withheld, the Waterloo Regional Police reveals that he is 32 years old and hails from the city of Kitchener. Two counts of uttering threats concerning the incident have already been charged against him.
The Kitchener man is believed to be part of the angry crowd that expressed their resentment at how the national government handles the pandemic, particularly the seemingly mandatory administration of COVID-19 vaccines among citizens and the setting up of “vaccination passports” that seem to take away rights and privileges.
Moreover, the Cambridge campaign stop is just one of the incidents where Trudeau was tangled with violence. A man was also formally charged with assault following a gravel throwing incident that primarily targeted Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in London, Ontario, on September 6.
Notably, Trudeau stressed that he would never “back down” on these “anti-vaxxer mobs.”
