A newly released internal counterterrorism report reveals that at least four federal cabinet ministers were subjects of specific "violent extremist threats" in the lead-up to the Ottawa convoy occupation in January.

The report outlines concerns about groups angered by COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and "gender-based" grievances, warning some cabinet ministers faced an "elevated threat" due to their "demographic profile."

The report was prepared by the Integrated Terrorism Assessment Centre (ITAC) and was obtained by PressProgress through Access-to-Information.
