Ottawa: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today called for political leaders to take a united stance against threats of violence after an incident of violent threats and intimation against Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland.
A video circulated online over the weekend showed Freeland arriving inside City Hall in Grande Prairie, Alta., on Friday when she was abused, threatened and called a traitor by a man.
Trudeau was referring to the incident during an announcing in Ottawa on Sunday that he would fund an action plan released to help LGBTQ communities.
“Threats, violence, and intimidation are always unacceptable. As leaders, we need to call it out. We need to take a united stance against it. And we need to work together to put an end to it,” Trudeau said.
