The Canadian Anti-Hate Network welcome news that CSIS reopened investigations into right-wing extremism following the Quebec mosque shooting in January, 2017. "It was an error in judgement for CSIS to suspend investigations into right-wing extremism," said Bernie M Farber, Chair of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network. "Hate movements go through peaks and valleys, but they never fully disappear. These groups should always be monitored and countered." He goes on to note that "CSIS played an important role in the dismantling of the neo-Nazi Heritage Front in the 90s and we are glad to hear they are recommitting to this work. We hope they devote the appropriate resources to this threat, especially as we are becoming increasingly aware of dangerous far-right extremism in Canada.Read more

"Days after that podcast was released, the hosts followed their own advice — deleting all of their podcasts from the sites on which they were hosted, and deleting their accounts on social media and various hate forums. Then, on May 16, Vice Canada and the Canadian Anti-Hate Network claimed to have revealed the identity of one of the podcast hosts."Read more
