Trudeau Powered Through A Rally In A Bulletproof Vest Despite Security Threat

Federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau used to be opposed to abortion but vowed he wouldn’t let his religious beliefs interfere with his job

On Saturday evening, Trudeau was an hour and a half delayed to the Mississauga rally due to the unspecified security threat.

Prepared remarks had indicated that Mr Trudeau's wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, was to introduce the Liberal leader.

Trudeau also took the opportunity to encourage progressive voters not to choose the NDP over Liberals, saying it could end up putting the Conservatives in power.

"For security reasons, we do not comment on security measures given to the prime minister", RCMP spokeswoman Stephanie Dumoulin said in email.

Mr Trudeau, who often plunges into crowds to shake hands and pose for photos, did the same as he was leaving the event, but this time he was closely surrounded by security.

The Liberal Party wouldn't comment, but CBC News sources confirmed the beefed-up security was a result of a security threat.

ESPN reported Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall said postgame the injury was to an ankle, but did not share additional details. The Hurricanes gave up late scoring drives in the fourth quarter in losses to Florida, North Carolina and Virginia Tech.

But after the blackface controversy and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh's strong showing following the English language debate, the NDP now hold 39 per cent of the intended youth vote according to the latest poll conducted by DART & Maru/Blue Voice Canada. On October 12, Justin Trudeau was in Mississauga for a rally.

The Liberals face a tough fight in Canada's westernmost province, particularly in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, where many voters are angry and frustrated with the Trudeau government's decision to purchase the Trans Mountain oil pipeline. "They're asking us for a blank cheque, saying 'Listen, we're going ot make those $14 billion in cuts and we'll tell you where after the election".

"Very upsetting to hear that Justin Trudeau had to wear a bulletproof vest tonight at a campaign event", the Conservatives' Andrew Scheer tweeted Saturday night. 'Threats of violence against political leaders have absolutely no place in our democracy'. "Thank you to the RCMP for taking these threats seriously and keeping us safe".

The Liberals will hope to get back on track Sunday when Trudeau campaigns in the Toronto area as the federal election campaign heads into its final week with the Liberals and Conservatives running neck and neck with the New Democrats and Bloc Quebecois also picking up some steam.

That means one thing, just as Andrew Scheer has been getting more scrutiny from the media as it started to look like the Conservatives could replace the Liberals in forming a minority government, so too will Singh come under greater scrutiny.
