The Canadian state, through its intelligence agency CSIS, helped form the Heritage Front and subsequently provided resources and leadership to the white nationalist organization. The Heritage Front gathered disparate neo-Nazis, and in the 90s became one of the strong fascist organizations in Canadian history.
Be it through support for Nazis overseas, providing a safe refuge for fascists in Canada, and the direct support for neo-Nazi groups like the Heritage Front, the Canadian state has a history of supporting the far-right and racist groups.
And yet, for the Canada 150 celebrations, we’re asked to forget about all of this and celebrate Canada as a place of “diversity”, “equality”, and “mutual respect.”
Fuck the 150th!
