    Loved the Trudeau defenders - The PMPD take their orders from the Prime Minister.

    Yeah, no. That's not how it works.

    after more reflexion on this piece , i don't believes this story for one bit.if there was such serious threat to the point of the idiot wearing a vest,they would have cancelled the rally.why? because there was over 2000 people in there,and it would had been more of a danger for them than for the turd.a shooting in a place filled tight with people is a guarantee of innocent victims,and they wouldn't have taken that risk. the theatre teacher fooled everybody with this comedy,trying to instills a wind of pity his way.

    all this is bull.

    Trudeau took 'unprecedented' step by wearing bulletproof vest: RCMP sources

    Oct 13 2019
    Mississauga, Ontario

    Uniformed tactical officers in army green outfits and wearing knapsacks surrounded Trudeau


    Surrounded by beefed up security detail, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau attends rally during an election campaign visit to Mississauga, Ontario on Saturday.

    Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau took an "unprecedented" step by wearing a bulletproof vest at a campaign rally in response to a security threat, say two veteran RCMP sources.

    The sources, who are familiar with the operations of the prime minister's personal security detail, told CBC News they've seen leaders wear body armour in other countries, but not Canada.

    It's also unprecedented to have a heavily armed tactical team in plain sight around Trudeau, they said. Normally those highly trained RCMP members are covert, not out in the open at campaign events, the sources said.

    On Saturday, Trudeau's scheduled appearance at a rally of 2,000 supporters in Mississauga was delayed by 90 minutes and featured a much heavier security detail once he took the stage.

    Surrounded Trudeau

    Uniformed tactical officers wearing knapsacks, as well as officers in plainclothes, surrounded him as he addressed the crowd. Some of the plainclothes officers were from Trudeau's protective detail, while others were from the VIP protective policing unit.

    CBC News sources confirmed that at the Mississauga rally, Trudeau wore a bulletproof vest — also known as soft body armour — and that the beefed-up protection was a result of a security threat. The details of that threat have not been revealed.

    The uniformed men were with the RCMP's Emergency Response Team, which is usually at Trudeau's events, but kept out of sight. They are trained to resolve extremely high-risk situations that are potentially violent and often dynamic in nature, according to the RCMP's website. Along with VIP and witness protection duties, the team resolves incidents where people are armed and barricaded in a building.

    Knapsacks held weapons

    The knapsacks they carried held firearms, according to RCMP sources. As well, one officer wore a ballistic shield on his back that looks like a rolled up mat. This shield can be used to cover Trudeau, making him a more difficult target for an attacker. But the shield can also be used to stop bullets.

    RCMP sources told CBC News that police conduct threat assessments for all events that political leaders attend. When a leader faces a serious security threat, the protective detail will then sit down with the leader to discuss how the RCMP want to move forward. They all will then negotiate a plan.

    If the leader, for example, still wanted to attend an event despite a high threat level, the RCMP would have to add additional safety measures.


    Knapsacks worn by security detail contained fire arms.

    The delay Saturday night may have been connected to the negotiations and implementation of the plan. Also, the fact that Trudeau was late going on stage, signals the threat likely came late in the day. Otherwise, it would have been already factored into the operations plan, the RCMP sources said.

    Speaking about the incident to reporters at a food drive event in Toronto on Sunday, Trudeau refused to offer any specifics about the threat, saying only that his first concern was for the safety of his family and for all those at the Mississauga event.

    "I took advice from the RCMP, worked with them," he said.

    On the sidelines

    Trudeau was not wearing a bulletproof vest today, but tactical officers were seen on the sidelines.

    In a statement to CBC News, the RCMP said it "does not comment on security measures afforded to the prime minister."

    Last month, sources told CBC News the RCMP were compiling daily threat reports on online hate targeting political leaders during the campaign leading up to the Oct. 21 election, fearing it could spill over into real-world violence.

    Meanwhile, there has been an increase in online posts condoning violence during the campaign, according to government sources close to the file. RCMP officials have been chasing down credible threats in a variety of ways including surveillance, phone calls and knocking on doors, according to RCMP sources.

    For sure the prime Turd was probably milking it for all it is worth, and probably did not consider the threat serious enough to forgo the appearance,but the threat dovetails nicely with the exaggeration of "increased threat of violence by right wing groups" and civil disarmament policies-however I doubt it a deliberate strategy from the get go.

    PS- nice touch with the gray man style back pack, so why the OD dress?- but I think I would prefer the sling style bag for rapid rifle deployment.

    Article says police believed the person was in the room.
    What about the danger to the 2000 people in the room. (lists several scenarios, bomb, shootout between bad guy and lots of RCMP in a crowded room with inadequate exits)

    Justin said his concern was with his family, and other people in the room. He sent his family home, protected himself with a vest and a phalanx of guards, but thousands stayed as they were.
    Ezra Levant asserts there were about 400 people in the room.

    Another Buffalo Chronicle article full of anonymous sources:

    RCMP source says ‘security risk’ against Trudeau was contrived by PMO staffers
    October 15, 2019
    https://buffalochronicle.com/2019/10...y-pmo-staffers

    A retired officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who remains in frequent communication with senior figures inside the federal police agency, is telling The Chronicle that the widely publicized ‘security threat’ against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday night in Mississauga was “largely contrived by political staffers” inside the PMO.

    Hoping to elicit sympathy in the national political discourse, senior PMO staffers actively instructed the RCMP on which equipment and weaponry have present, which uniforms protective officers would wear, and which security precautions would be taken at the private invitation-only Liberal Party event.

    Those conversations were initiated, the source claims, by political operatives Mathieu Bouchard and Ben Chin — both of whom report directly to Gerald Butts, the Prime Minister’s principal secretary, and Katie Telford, the Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff.
    ben-chin
    Many in Ottawa call Ben Chin as “Trudeau’s Brain,” in reference to his outsized influence over strategy and direction inside of the PMO. His influence with Trudeau now rivals that of Gerald Butts.

    The extra security precautions are rumored to have cost Canadian taxpayers an extra $135,000 that the RCMP had not already been planning to spend that evening — mostly for labor and overtime costs associated with the movement of heavy weaponry.

    “If there were an actual threat, the building would have been evacuated, and bomb-sniffing dogs would have searched the entire building and grounds immediately. They wouldn’t have left hundreds of women and children packed in a ballroom for hours,” he explains. “But the political staffers wanted to see him in a vest for the cameras.”

    “They were barely checking IDs at the door,” he said. “They were treating the officers on the scene like props, and it very much offended the top officials at the agency.”

    Shortly after the event, PMO staffers began pushing word of an unspecified security risk to foreign news outlets — including The New York Times and The Washington Post.

    Well that's an interesting twist but I'm not sure if we can believe this particular source. Another nothingburger I'm afraid.

    Regardless of the Buffalo Chronicle's bona fides, I'm very much of the opinion that it really was just a staged event.

    I just saw a quick news clip in which The Turd refuses to answer pointed questions as to why, if the threat was credible enough to have his family stay away, the venue was not cleared or other precautions taken to ensure the safety of the people who showed up. Well, that would be because it was staged and any attempt by The Turd to lie around that would expose it for what it was...a steaming pile of excrement cooked up by his desperate handlers.
