Canada puts Proud Boys on terror list, cites active security threat

Canada officially designates far-right group ‘Proud Boys’ as terrorist organization

The Canadian government has designated the Proud Boys group as a terrorist entity.

Authorities allege Nordean told others that they should not be complacent and that the Proud Boys were going to "bring back that original spirit of 1776 of what really established the character of what America is".

Government officials say the move will help Canada freeze the groups' financial assets and criminalize financing, training and recruitment for all such groups.

Nordean was marching at the front of a group of Proud Boys shortly before the riot began before he broke into the Capitol building with other members of the group.

"Based on their actions and ideologies, each group meets the legal threshold for listing as set out in the Criminal Code, which requires reasonable grounds to believe that an entity has knowingly participated in or facilitated a terrorist activity, or has knowingly acted on behalf of, at the direction of, or in association with such an entity", the Trudeau Liberals said in a statement.

"There has been a growing body of evidence. of the escalation of violence that this group has been involved in", he said, noting that Canadian authorities have been monitoring the Proud Boys since 2018. "They're all hateful, they're all unsafe", said Public Safety Minister Bill Blair.

In fact, there are still several chapters across Canada.

Mr Trump took to a stage near the White House and exhorted supporters to "fight", using the word more than 20 times. Trump. "Then he aimed them straight at the Capitol, declaring: "You'll never take back our country with weakness".

"We work very closely with law enforcement agencies and our national security partners, ".

Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, who had been pushing for the Proud Boys to be designated a terrorist group, welcomed the new listings while acknowledging concerns about Canada's terror laws.

Canada now lists a total of 73 terrorist groups. "The Government of Canada will continue to take appropriate actions to counter terrorist threats to Canada, its citizens and its interests around the world".

There's no USA law to designate a wholly domestic group as a terrorist organization. Individuals that seek to enter Canada may also be inadmissible if they are found to be associated with a listed entity. At that point, the group will get access to unclassified information and summaries that were part of the case in support of its addition to the list. They have operated for a long time out in the open.

"They have been historically used to marginalize, unjustly, some of the people that are most marginalized, and that is a real critique that's been raised by a number of human rights groups and civil rights groups", he said. But members are often seen carrying firearms and bats and donning protective gear, and some have been convicted of crimes against anti-fascist protesters. They are white supremacists, anti-Semitics, Islamophobic, misogynist groups.

"In the aftermath of the U.S. presidential election, we have seen signals of escalation towards violence from a number of different groups including the Proud Boys".

While the organization has been, from its founding, sexist, "Western chauvinist", and fairly twisted from the beginning - with a noted emphasis on preventing its male membership from masturbating to pornography in order that they focus their energy on bedding women and procreating - McInnes (who also co-founded VICE) began trying to distance himself from what he created just two years after its creation.
