OTTAWA – Justin Trudeau’s office says the Liberal leader’s home was broken into Saturday morning while his wife and children slept.

A spokeswoman says the Liberals leader himself was working in Winnipeg at the time.

Kate Purchase says that “everyone in the family is safe and nobody was harmed.”

She says a threatening note was left inside the home but that police asked her not to comment on its comments.

Purchase says to her knowledge, nothing was taken.

She says Trudeau’s family is on their way to meet him in Montreal.

Ottawa police and RCMP are investigating, but would not comment.
