On a social media post, Basran said "When you put your name forward and are selected to serve the people of your community, you expect some criticism. But the post above goes beyond anything I would have ever expected.

"This may not be a big deal to some, but this is incredibly hurtful to my family and I. So much so, I'll admit it brought me to tears. I'm scared, angry, sad and everything in between.

"I put up with a lot of criticism at times, but threatening my safety is completely unacceptable. If this is the new norm for elected officials, I want no part of it."

Police said the suspect, a 52-year-old Kelowna man, faces potential criminal charges. He was reportedly released on strict conditions and is expected to appear in court on June 24.

Basran will be making a statement regarding the alleged threats on Wednesday afternoon.
