Quebec man charged in alleged online threats aimed at Trudeau, Muslims

“Andre Audet, 62, appeared at a courthouse in Longueuil, Que., on Jan. 9 in connection with two charges — public incitement of hatred and wilful promotion of hatred.

Charges filed at the courthouse say both alleged crimes occurred between Jan. 1 and Oct. 22, 2019 — the day after last year’s federal election.

The RCMP says in an emailed statement that the investigation was carried out by its Integrated National Security Enforcement Team.

Given a rise in online threats, the RCMP says it has focused resources on online surveillance and investigators are now better able to identify and deal with threats made on the web.”
