OTTAWA, March 23, 2015 – The office of Senator Claude Carignan, Leader of the Government in the Senate, confirms the receipt of a suspicious envelope at our Parliament Hill office.
RCMP analyses of this envelope, as well as the contents of those received by other Senators’ offices, did not indicate the presence of any harmful substances.
“Our priority, as always, is the safety of Senators, staff and visitors. We are relieved by the news from RCMP that the contents of the envelope were negative. We thank Senate Protective Services and law enforcement for their prompt response.”
