The investigation appears to be in relation to a recent break-in at Justin Trudeau’s Ottawa home. However, police have not made any connection publicly between the two.

On Saturday Aug. 16, someone broke into the Liberal leader’s home while Trudeau’s wife and children slept. He was in Winnipeg at the time.

Nothing appeared to be stolen, however according to reports, the intruder left a “threatening” note.

“Everybody’s safe, but the idea of someone getting into the house while my family was sleeping, while I’m away working is very distressing, to say the least,” said Trudeau after the break-in.

Following the break-in, Trudeau said he was re-evaluating how much time he spends on the road. Trudeau said that he and his wife, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, have had some “very serious discussions” about his extensive travel schedule and the exposure his role as Liberal leader places on his young family.

“Obviously my family is shaken,” said Trudeau earlier this week. “We are working with the RCMP now and taking a look at possible avenues to reassure me as I travel across the country…that my family is safe, and obviously reassure my family when I’m not home that they’re going to be safe,” he said.
