Justin Trudeau isn’t very well-liked by many Canadians, and some of them threatened to kill* him during the 2019 election.
A new report by the National Post reveals that Justin Trudeau received close to 60 threats during the 2019 election, according to the RCMP.
At one point, Trudeau had to wear a bullet proof vest, fearing someone would shoot him. This happened during a campaign stop in Mississauga, west of Toronto.
While some Canadians were dismayed to hear the Prime Minister has faced multiple death threats, others believe the number to be “low.”
Trudeau is increasingly unpopular in Western Canada due to his opposition to oil and gas production. The prime minister is often criticized for being too “woke.”
Trudeau drew the ire of unvaccinated Canadians when he likened them to misogynists and racists. In response, a Toronto-based doctor called him out, stating his comments were “unhelpful.”
Some have gone even farther, moving to charge the sitting prime minister with inciting hatred.
*Uttering threats is a criminal code violation in Canada.
