White supremacy on the rise in Canada as alt right activists disrupt anti-racism march Featured

 

If recent developments in Canada are any indication, white supremacy is on the rise in this country.

 

Members of the alt-right group Soldiers of Odin disrupted the annual International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination March, held on Saturday at Thornton Park in Vancouver. 

 

This was the second year in a row that the white nationalists disrupted the annual march in the presence of the police.

 

The Coalition Against Bigotry, one of the organizers of the annual march, has complained that laxity of the police is giving legitimacy to such groups. Last year, the same group tried to take over the center stage of the event while the police looked on.

 

Some witnesses claim that at least 14 members of the Soldiers of Odin came to disrupt the march this year.

 

The organizers feel that Canadian politicians and the police have failed to check the growing activities of white supremacists ever since the election of Donald Trump as US President.

 

Statistics Canada has already noticed a spike in hate crimes across BC.  

 

If this was not enough, a Sikh man was attacked in Ottawa last Friday. The two white men involved in the incident stole his turban and hurled racial abuses at him. The attackers also stole his wallet and bus pass.

 

In the meantime, the suspect in last year’s Quebec mosque shooting that left six people dead has pleaded not guilty. Alexandre Bissonnette, who was a supporter of far right leaders, including Trump is facing six first degree murder charges.
