The Manitoba man arrested yesterday in Ottawa for attempting to storm the area where Justin Trudeau and the Governor-General is usually live has been identified as Corey Hurren, a resident of Bowsman, just north of Swan River. A Swan River man has set up a Go Fund Me page to support the family: https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-the-hurren-family
The organizer says "A friend of many people in the Swan Valley, Corey Hurren is obviously in a lot of trouble for his actions. This page isn't about condoning his actions but it is about making sure his family receives the support it needs during this difficult time. Donations made here will make their way to the family and they will direct how they wish to use the money. We understand that many people have strong opinions on both sides of the actions Corey took - this is not the place to debate the event. Instead, it is here simply to ensure that as a community we can all look out for his family. It's what we do in small towns."
Yesterday morning a black pickup truck with Manitoba plates rammed the pedestrian entrance to the Rideau Hall grounds. After the truck was disabled it is alleged Hurren ran on to the grounds. The Prime Minister and Governor-General were not home at the time. It's being reported Hurren allegedly had a long gun and a note, apparently driving from Manitoba to Ottawa to deliver the note. RCMP will provide an update this morning (July 3) on the security breach at Rideau Hall.
