Canada Calls Proud Boys 'a Terrorist Entity'

Yesterday, the Canadian parliament labeled US far-right Proud Boys group 'a terrorist entity',

The motion is purely symbolic, but the government has said authorities are monitoring the group and collecting evidence that could support the move.

In Canada, they first made headlines in 2017 when five navy members of the Proud Boys were disciplined for disrupting an indigenous ceremony in Halifax.

Canada lists dozens of banned terrorist organizations including Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, the Taliban and the Islamic State group.

Trump refuses to denounce white supremacists then tells the Proud Boys to "stand by". 

When Trump called for the January 6 "wild" protest, the Proud Boys took that as a personal message from Trump to act.

It's a fascinating study about mobs and organizers. Please play the debate video and the WSJ expose in the first Tweet at the very top.
