Samuel Grenier, the organizer of a protest that forced Montréal’s largest COVID-19 vaccination centre to shut down, has found a home in the close guard of an ex-Rebel Media employee, now the leader of the Conservative Party of Québec.
"A Toronto judge has reserved his decision in the case of a former paralegal accused of advocating genocide and promoting hatred in email and on the internet, including an open Twitter account.
Rupen Balaram-Sivaram has pleaded not guilty to 10 charges, including the rare charge of advocating genocide. The charges stem in part from a series of hateful social media posts and emails he allegedly sent to public figures and media organizations that call for death to Jews, homosexuals, Westerners and Christians.
. . .
In her written submissions, [Crown attorney Kim] Motyl wrote that Balaram-Sivaram’s 'entire social media footprint is riddled with evidence of his belief that those of Jewish descent and homosexuals should be exterminated. Further, his hard devices — his computer, two USB drives and his cellphone are likewise full of such sentiment.'"
