After successfully putting pressure on the Liberal government to shut down the Proud Boys in Canada, Jagmeet Singh and the NDP continue to fight to shut down online hate.
On Wednesday, joined by people who signed the NDP petition to ban the Proud Boys in Canada, a right-wing extremist group that promotes white supremacist views, the Leader of the NDP Jagmeet Singh said that the fight against hate isn’t over. While celebrating the fact that because of the pressure the Proud Boys were designated a terrorist organization in Canada, Singh unveiled the NDP’s next steps for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals to finally take action against online hate.
“Because of our work, because of every share and signature, because of the pressure we built, the government designated the Proud Boys and a few other alt-right groups as terrorist organizations,” said Singh. “Together, we literally saved lives. We showed that when we work together, we can achieve great things. But we cannot stop there. Hate and far-right groups continue to spread like wildfire online. We must fight online hate to keep our communities safe.”
