‘Don’t you know who I am,’ Mulcair reportedly asks Mounties after blowing through security checks on Hill
Police say Mulcair is in the habit of simply waving himself through security checkpoints on the Hill, where security guards generally recognize him and allow him to pass.
Thursday, however, media reports say a new officer was working the gate and did not recognize the party leader. So when Mulcair failed to stop then continued to drive through four or five stop signs, the RCMP swiftly pursued his vehicle.
When Mulcair finally stopped his vehicle, he asked the officers: “Don’t you know who I am?” CTV reported.
Mulcair also reportedly made other threats to security personnel, along the lines that their jobs may be in danger after the confrontation.
He then reportedly apologized for the misunderstanding.
