Brampton Police have been investigating “suspicious items” that were sent to Kari Lake’s campaign headquarters and have now confirmed they were in fact part of a box of cigars.
The items, which came with a letter, were returned to the campaign headquarters this morning.
Lake released the following statement on her Facebook page.
“I appreciate how this has affected our supporters and are doing everything to get back to work. The election will be a tough fight. As all political campaigns it will be. I look forward to that day.”
The investigation has been a long one for Brampton police.
“We investigated this matter over the weekend,” Const. David Hopkinson said at a press conference this morning.
“We did an extensive search on our property. We made our investigation public as soon as we received the first tip around 1:30am Sunday morning and we have been actively monitoring this matter for the past two days.
“The items were brought to our attention, they do not belong in our possession.”
Police did not say whether the items had anything to do with the investigation, but they have been on the streets in the last few days and have been seen on at least two occasions, including one this morning at a bus stop on the 401 south.
They have also been seen in the following locations.
• Brampton, May 22: 6:07pm at the corner of Hinton and College
• Mississauga, May 22: 6:07pm at Mayfield Drive and Hwy 401
• Guelph, May 22: 5:13pm at the intersection of Mayfield and
