Trudeau Liberals add Proud Boys, 12 other groups to terror threat list

Proud Boys march across the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland Canada officially designates far-right group ‘Proud Boys’ as terrorist organization

The US Justice Department arrested and charged a top member of the Seattle chapter of the far-right Proud Boys group on Wednesday over allegations he had a role in the storming of the US Capitol on January 6 by pro-Trump followers.

Canada's Public Safety Minister Bill Blair designates 13 new groups as terrorist entities.

Being added to the watch list does not automatically criminalise the groups themselves, but allows authorities to seize their assets and prosecute members or associates for carrying out extremist activities.

Nordean was marching at the front of a group of Proud Boys shortly before the riot began before he broke into the Capitol building with other members of the group.

Senior officials speaking on background during a technical briefing said authorities had been monitoring and collecting evidence about the Proud Boys before the Capitol Hill attack, but confirmed that the event provided information that helped with the decision to list the organization.

A motion to declare the group a terrorist organisation was met with unanimous approval from all political parties in the house of commons late last month.

Separately, Nicholas DeCarlo, a 30-year-old Texas man, and Nicholas Ochs, a founder of Hawaii's chapter of the Proud Boys, were charged with conspiring with one another and unnamed co-conspirators to stop the certification of Mr. Biden's Electoral College win as part of last month's riot at the Capitol, according to the indictment.

Evan Balgord, CAHN's executive director told CNN during an interview after the announcement that his organization's concern was that protest groups, for instance, Indigenous groups, not be harmed by a "broadening" of the terrorist category. "The Government of Canada will continue to take appropriate actions to counter terrorist threats to Canada, its citizens and its interests around the world".

There's no United States law to designate a wholly domestic group as a terrorist organization. Anyone belonging to the group can be blocked from entering Canada.

Nordean's family, in a statement cited by the Seattle Times, said: "We have tried for a long while to get our son off the path which led to his arrest today - to no avail".

Canada now lists a total of 73 terrorist groups. As the Guardian reported, McInnes's public split with the Proud Boys came directly after the Federal Bureau of Investigation categorized them as "an extremist group with ties to white nationalism" - though he was still part of the group when it took part in the idiocy and violence in Charlottesville in 2017. But members are often seen carrying firearms and bats and donning protective gear, and some have been convicted of crimes against anti-fascist protesters.

The group's profile was raised in September when former USA president Donald Trump, asked in an election debate if he would denounce white supremacists and militia groups, called on the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by". "Had Trump won the election, I'm confident the Liberals would not have gone after the Proud Boys", Wiseman said.

"Leaders of the group planned their participation by setting out objectives, issuing instructions, and directing members during the insurrection", the site reads, noting that Proud Boys' chairman, Enrique Tarrio, was arrested two days before the siege in law enforcement's efforts to apprehend those who'd planned to incite violence.
