The group that made headlines after the debates for the 2020 election, “Proud Boys”, due to then President Donald Trump mentioning their group, has now been declared a white supremacist terrorist group by the Canadian government.
The group is also allegedly involved in the insurrection that occurred in the Capitol on January 6th, 2020. The group came to fame during the riots of the summer of 2020 and continued to make waves well into the fall which caused them to be mentioned during the debates.
Canada has categorized the group after coming to a decision after a government meeting to discuss their status. Check out the video below.
Here’s the video.
This is big time.
Thank you, Canada.
Canadian lawmakers just voted unanimously to call on the government to declare “the Proud Boys” a white supremacist terrorist group.
The vote passed unanimously — without a single dissent…pic.twitter.com/mN4hBDXhXO
