Fort McMurray man charged after threats allegedly made against MP David Yurdiga: RCMP

A 62-year-old man has been charged in connection with an investigation into alleged threats made against David Yurdiga, the member of Parliament for Fort McMurray-Cold Lake.

“On Feb. 16. 2021, Wood Buffalo RCMP received a complaint from the Office of the Sergeant-at-Arms from the House of Commons in Ottawa, advising of an allegation of threats against (Yurdiga),” police said in a news release issued on Wednesday.

That same day, the RCMP said officers arrested Bradley Love and charged him with uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and making an indecent telephone call with intent to alarm.

“Fort McMurray RCMP can advise that Parliament Hill security has taken measures to assess the situation and have also taken measures to ensure the safety of MP David Yurdiga and his staff,” police said.

The RCMP did not provide details about the threats, citing the fact that the case is now before the courts.

Yurdiga, a Conservative MP, was first elected to a seat in the House of Commons in 2014.
