“There are places, yes, that I have to have security now and I don’t think that’s a great situation,” she said, quoted by Canadian Press news agency.

“I’m someone who is trying to do my job, live my life, and talk and engage with people, and it makes it harder. I’m not going to let this stop me but I wish it would stop.”

Online abuse has been going on since she was elected, she added, but in recent months public confrontations have become worse.

She said she had received messages that included sexualised insults and threats against her family. In person she has been called an enemy, a traitor and a “communist piece of garbage”.

“The vocal sexism and hateful comments that are directed to people who work on climate change is unacceptable,” she told AFP news agency.

Two years ago Canadian Conservative MP Gerry Ritz apologised to Ms McKenna after calling her “climate Barbie”.

As the climate change debate rages, many activists have found themselves the targets of threats and abuse.
