Canadian presidential candidate Justin Trudeau is under strict security during the election campaign and advised to wear bulletproof vest, after receiving threats, well-informed source told Canadian official broadcaster CBC.

Trudeau was seen wearing body armor under a shirt and jacket, after appearing at a gathering of 2,000 supporters on the outskirts of downtown Toronto on Saturday.

Trudeau usually avoid a jacket during the campaign, CBC reported.

As soon as Trudeau left the stage to mingle with his supporters, he continued to be protected by security personnel, some carrying heavy bags.

CBC, quoting Trudeau-led Liberal Party sources, said they were at the site of the campaign after receiving security threats.

The Prime Minister’s campaign team, however, declined to comment further, CBC said.

His wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, who is slated to be on the scene, also did not appear, local media said.

During the election campaign period, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will keep a daily record of hate speech online targeting political leaders, fearing a violent incident, the official broadcaster said.

Unlike the United States, which has faced four presidential assassinations since 1865, Canada has almost no history of serious political violence.

Meanwhile, opinion polls saw the Liberals tied to its Conservative primary rival, led by Andrew Scheer.

Scheer has pledged that if he wins this October 21 election, he will immediately stop the aid he calls a subsidy to a wealthy company.
