EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says her security team is monitoring online threats against her.

She says her officers keep an eye on such things as a matter of course and she's confident that's being done.

Notley also says none of what has occurred is out of the ordinary.

The CBC quotes the RCMP as saying they are aware of some anti-NDP Facebook posts that contained threatening comments against the premier.

The CBC says some of the statements — which have since been deleted — made references to violence against Notley, while others were hateful or vulgar.

Notley says it's part of the job.

"It's part of being premier probably in almost any day and age. It is what it is,'' she said Tuesday.
