(AFP) October 13 2019 Montreal - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Sunday he plans to continue campaigning as normal after wearing body armor the night before a move the CBC reported was due to threats to his security. This will not change at all how I campaign Trudeau said on the sidelines of a campaign event in York a week ahead of Canadian legislative elections. Trudeau was in his shirtsleeves as he normally is when campaigning after wearing body armor under a shirt and jacket on Saturday. When asked to answer journalists questions about the threats against him Trudeau explained My first concern was for my family and for all the Canadians in the room but refused to comment further. Trudeaus main rival Conservative Andrew Scheer took to Twitter Saturday evening to stress that threats against political leaders have absolutely no place in our democracy. Jagmeet Singh the leader of the New Democratic Party (NPD) called the threats against Trudeau troubling in a Saturday night tweet. The liberal leader was more than an hour and a half late to an event Saturday in Mississauga a city in the suburbs of Toronto where about 2000 supporters were waiting for him. There was also a higher security presence than normal following a security threat the CBC reported.
