The Canadian Parliament unanimously approved a proposal calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to ban the extremist “Proud Boys” in Canada as a “terrorist entity”.
The Canadian government indicated that its security services are closely monitoring the organization and gathering evidence, to support the blacklisting of the organization.
The proposal, which was adopted by the House of Representatives, urges the Trudeau government to use all available means to counter the spread of extremist groups, starting with the immediate classification of the “Brow Boys” as a “terrorist entity” in Canada.
The Broad Boys were among supporters of former US President Donald Trump who stormed the Capitol Building in Washington on January 6.
