Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described the series of suspicious packages that were sent to prominent Democrats and others as "deeply concerning."
“All citizens deserve to live in peace and security and a free press is foundational in any democracy," he said Thursday. "We must ensure that they can do their important work without fear."
Trudeau went on to say that Canada was ready to assist the US.
"I want to ensure all Canadians that we are monitoring the situation closely and as always Canada stands ready to provide assistance to our American friends and allies if need be," he said.
