A 49-year-old woman from Lethbridge has been charged with uttering threats for social media posts she made regarding the federal government and the prime minister’s wife.
RCMP in Calgary received information about the online threats on May 11 and officers were able to identify the social media account where the posts originated.
The next day, police tracked down the account holder and an address, where one person was taken into custody without incident.

Seymour-Peters is not to have contact or be found within 100 meters of Sophie Grégoire Trudeau or her immediate family and she cannot attend any political party, gathering, or function.
She is to appear in Lethbridge provincial court on June 8.
