He says they contacted Waterloo Regional Police immediately upon learning of the post.

“It is unacceptable to make threats, written or verbal, towards anyone,” he continued. “No matter the intention, we take any intimidation or threat of violence seriously and the authors of these threats need to understand that they will be held accountable.”

Police say they are investigating the matter and are working to identify the author of the post.
