MP backs Basran

Okanagan MP Dan Albas is showing his support for Colin Basran following alleged online threats made against the Kelowna mayor.

"This is a democratic society. Men and women have fought and died for the right to disagree with elected officials, but their are legitimate means through the proper process, which is through democratic protest, voting, discussions with elected officials and letters to the editor. That is how we do it here in Canada."

RCMP arrested a 52-year-old man who will make a court appearance in late June.  

"Anytime someone is threatened, whether it be online or in person, we have to take it seriously. Running for elected office, you need to have some backbone, but their are some times where you have to call in authorities", Albas added.
