Cariboo-Prince George MP Todd Doherty took to social media this week sending a stern message to whomever has been threatening him and his family.
“Today I received another threat,” he said in a 20-second Facebook video posted Monday, April 12.
“So I want to send a message. I don’t run, and I don’t hide. You threatened my family, you approach my family and I will take appropriate action, and that’s not a threat. That’s a promise.”
In a statement released Tuesday, Doherty confirmed he and his family are safe, and thanked everyone for their concern.
“As I mentioned in my video, I have taken appropriate action and notified the RCMP and the House of Commons Protective Services,” Doherty stated.
“As this case is currently under investigation, I cannot comment further.”
Doherty was first elected in the riding of Cariboo-Prince George in October 2015.
He has four children and resides in Prince George with his wife, Kelly. He is originally from Williams Lake, which is included in his riding.
