Jeremy founded the online group, Diagolon, and share affiliation with the “Freedom Convoy”. He is facing firearm and assault charges in Saskatchewan, and Nova Scotia, in separate incidents.

In a statement released on twitter, Poilievre said, “This weekend I became aware of disgusting comments made by Jeremy McKenzie and another man, where they discuss sexually assaulting my wife.

He further added, “My office has referred these comments to the RCMP to assess whether criminal charges should be laid. This kind of garbage has no place in Canada. No one should face this abuse.”

PM Justin Trudeau also reacted to the assault and said, “No one should ever be subject to threats of violence or the kind of hatred that we’ve seen increasingly, in the public discourse, and the publics sphere. It’s important that we all stand up and condemn that.”
