A suspicious package that was found at Premier Doug Ford’s home on Tuesday has been deemed safe, officials say.
A Toronto Fire Services spokesperson told Global News emergency crews were called to a home on Tettenhall Road, near Kipling Avenue and Eglinton Avenue West, at around 2:10 p.m. with reports of an envelope with white powder in it.
Sources told Global News the package was opened by Ford’s wife, Karla Ford.
Officials said no injuries were reported in the incident. Emergency crews have since left the area.
A statement from Ford’s office said the powder was found to be a “mixture of non-toxic materials.”
The Ford family has lived in Etobicoke for several years.
This is not the first time police have been called to a premier’s home in Ontario.
In 2016, police investigated after protesters staged a vigil outside Kathleen Wynne’s home and left a tent and other items on her driveway.
