OTTAWA - Justin Trudeau says he and his family are "extremely troubled" after their Ottawa home was broken into Saturday morning while his wife and children slept.

The Liberal leader himself was working in Winnipeg at the time.

"Obviously we're extremely troubled with this," Trudeau said in Montreal.

"My family has decided they're actually coming to join me in Montreal today because they don't want to stay in the house tonight."

Liberal party spokeswoman Kate Purchase said that everyone in the family is safe and nobody was harmed.

Purchase says to her knowledge, nothing was taken.

A threatening note was reportedly left on the premises.

Ottawa police and RCMP are investigating, but would not comment.

"We’re a little bit rattled but we’re hoping that investigation and security will keep us safe," Trudeau said.
