BERNIER AND HIS INFAMOUS NEO-NAZI FRIEND

BERNIER AND HIS INFAMOUS NEO-NAZI FRIEND

Paul Fromm is perhaps the leading Canadian far Right leader. Fromm has decades of involvement with the Canadian organized hate movement, from the Edmund Burke Society to the Western Guard to the Heritage Front to a myriad number of white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups. The Southern Poverty Law Centre tells us this:

PPC defined by anti-immigrant stance

For a party allegedly trying to distance itself from accusations of xenophobia, if not outright racism, the People’s Party of Canada isn’t exactly covering itself with glory.

PPC Leader Maxime Bernier and numerous candidates have made no secret they want Canada to decrease immigration. And while discussions of immigration limits and border protection are legitimate political conversations, the PPC leader has also said he is against a policy of multiculturalism — a defining element of the Canadian identity.

Three Conservative MPs were also part of the group, but said they were added without their knowledge.

A fringe Facebook group—run by a far-right activist whose protests have attracted conspiracy theorists, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis—featured three current Conservative MPs and a sitting Tory senator among it members.

While the three MPs appear to be unwitting members of the group, Conservative Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu was happy to join the conversation.

Starving online trolls won’t stop far-right ideas from going mainstream

Facebook recently announced it is banning a number of Canadian far-right figures and groups from its platform. Those expelled from Facebook include the “alt-right” activist Faith Goldy and the hate groups Soldiers of Odin, the Canadian Nationalist Front, and the Aryan Strikeforce.

The decision comes on the heels of the terrorist attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, where a white supremacist killed 50 worshippers and injured 50 more at two mosques in the city.

Andrew Scheer Joins White Nationalist Faith Goldy, Hate Group Members to Endorse Yellow Vests Convoy

Andrew Scheer and members of his Conservative caucus attended and spoke at the Yellow Vests Convoy rally in Ottawa. Attendees of the rally included white nationalist Faith Goldy and members of prominent far-right anti-immigrant hate groups.

Scheer delivered a speech at the rally, assuring participants the “we’re fighting for you. We’re standing with you.”

The Convoy has been plagued by controversy as it made its way from Alberta to Ottawa.

‘Footsy with Freaks’: How Kenney Makes Room for Bigots in His Party

In Alberta, many fear a UCP win on April 16 will threaten their rights and safety.

UCP leader Jason Kenney: In his 2016 drive to unite Alberta’s right, he bussed hundreds of Christian college students into a Progressive Conservative policy convention. The only two women candidates, saying they’d been abused for their pro-choice views, quit the party afterwards.

Sarah Elder-Chamanara just can’t bring herself to vote for a party whose candidates make homophobic remarks and want to restrict abortions — no matter how much she agrees with its other positions.
