The Canadian Forces reservist accused of breaching the gates of Rideau Hall last summer while armed wanted to see the prime minister arrested, according to a preliminary investigation by the RCMP. Corey Hurren faces 22 criminal charges related to the four loaded firearms police say he had in his possession on July 2, when he allegedly drove a truck onto the grounds of the official residence and set out on foot toward the prime minister’s home at Rideau Cottage. The Manitoba resident and Canadian Ranger is also charged with uttering threats against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Neither the Trudeaus nor Gov. Gen. Julie Payette were home at the time.
