Canadian Politician Justin Trudeau’s Home Broken Into

Aug. 17 (Bloomberg) -- The Ottawa home of Canada’s Liberal Party leader was broken into early yesterday morning as his wife and three children slept and he was away.

Justin Trudeau, the son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, was traveling in Winnipeg at the time, Mylene Dupere, his spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed statement. Everyone is safe and nobody was harmed, Dupere said, adding that both the Ottawa police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating.

“Obviously, we’re very troubled by this,” Trudeau was quoted as saying by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., which reported the break-in earlier.

The RCMP, as they are known, is responsible for protecting the governor general of Canada, the prime minister, their families and residences as well as federal court judges and federal cabinet ministers, according to its website.

The site doesn’t specify the protection of other politicians. Trudeau leads the Liberals, which are the third-largest party in the House of Commons, behind the New Democratic Party and Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party.

A call to the RCMP in Ottawa wasn’t immediately returned.
