Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: March 19 Anti-Muslim Rallies: Some Victories, Some Hard Lessons

By this point ARC readers know that any time we mention Kevin "The Chairman" Goudreau on the blog, it is probably because he did something profoundly stupid or embarrassing but isn't self aware enough to realize that this is the case: Yep, the Goudreau held a rally in Peterborough while wearing an ill-fitted suit because he ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Jody Issel, Soldiers of Odin Moose Jaw President, Isn’t Even Trying Anymore

You know, if there's one positive thing about Trump's election is that the racists we've been covering here for years have become refreshingly honest about their views. Take this guy for example: Now this is admittedly an older photo of Jody Issel, but it does sort of capture a particular moment in time, specifically the ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Andrew Benson Reappears With Interesting Friends

It seems that in addition to the Goudreau, who recently came to our attention after a lengthy absence, another character whom we had once been keeping close tabs on but whom we lost track of has reappeared on our radar: Andrew Benson has been somewhat of a political chameleon over the years. He started out as ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: June 2016 Bits and Bites: Paul Fromm, Robert Reitmeier, Tyler Sturrup, Canadians United 4 Canada, and Assault on Muslim Woman

A few things have occurred over the past few days that we figure warrant some discussion, though not necessarily stand alone posts.

The article published on Saturday lays out much of the evidence (in addition to the released audio transcript that was released a two years ago) used to ultimately convict Tyler Sturrup and Robert Reitmeier, founding members of Western European Bloodlines (WEB) which was, if one can believe it, a more violent offshoot of the Aryan Guard. We ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Southern Ontario Skins: A Cast of Stooges Part XI

Our readers have likely noticed that our output has been rather limited of late. In part that's due to not having as much to cover here as we rework some of our intel gathering strategies. The other reason is we just haven't felt like writing all that much. And a lot of what has been ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Reitmeier: Life in Prison

Before his friends and family begin caterwauling about the great injustice of imprisoning Robert Reitmeier for murder, remember this. Reitmeier is eligible for parole in 13 years. As such there is a possibility he could be released before he turns 40. On the other hand, in 13 years Mark Mariani will still be dead. There's ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: The Reitmeier Murder Trial: A Third Person

As we thought, video surveillance evidence is playing a significant role in the murder trial of Robert Reitmeier, co-founder of the white supremacist group Western European Bloodlines (W.E.B) which was itself an off-shoot to the Aryan Guard. Despite the prosecution’s efforts to have the video evidence declared inadmissible, the jury was shown videos of Reitmeier ...

During the summer when we wrote about a far-right and antisemitic Catholic organization's list of speakers at an upcoming event in Canada we noted that one of the speakers was American libertarian and frequent presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Our readers on Facebook will be aware of items such as this being posted as status updates: In response to the new Facebook guidelines I hereby declare that my copyright ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Sturrup Drafting Charter Challenge?

We've got to admit we aren't sure where Sturrup is going with this. Perhaps Reitmeier's wife, who has so frequently posted defences of her husband, might be able to shed light on this? Our guess is it might have something to do with the length of time it is taking for his case to go ...
