Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Former PEGIDA Canada Supporter and RISE Canada Iraj Gardner Speaks to ARC

When ARC reported on the PEGIDA Canada rally in London, ON which was again dwarfed in number by comparison by counter-protesters this weekend, I also included information that was sent to me by someone who at one time had intimate knowledge about how PEGIDA functioned. She had that knowledge because at one time she was ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: PEGIDA Canada Rally in London, ON Today: Outnumbered Again

Before getting into the news of today's PEGIDA event in London, ARC would like to direct readers' attention to this article detailing the history of far-right racist activism that has been present in the city for longer than this blog has been active. PEGIDA Canada in that context is merely the most recent manifestation of ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Part II: Northern Guard and the News Media

When I published the story on the Northern Guard on Wednesday, I expected it would be the first of a two part profile of the group. However events that have transpired since the first article was published sort of scream for a follow-up detailing the reaction of the Northern Guard leadership and membership at large. ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Part I: Northern Guard Feel Press Misrepresented Them…. So Let’s Get To Know Them Better

I have to admit that keeping up with all the new ultra-nationalist groups that, while small in membership are springing up like weeds, has been challenging. In part this is because they are so incredibly fractious in nature; personality conflicts or the desire to "be in charge" results in one group splitting into two or ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Protests Planned For September 30 Because…. Reasons?

While I anticipate that the anti-government and Islamophobic rallies that have marked the past spring and summer with diminishing returns will start to decline as fall arrives and cease almost altogether as winter takes hold, the folks the blog keeps an eye on appear to be getting at least one "national event" by the end ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Disguised B&H Leader McKee Gets Far To Close To Prime Minister Trudeau

I haven't written a great deal about Calgary's Blood & Honour, though I have been keeping an eye on them. For the most part their public profile has been relatively low with the occasional flyer and/or sticker promoting the group being found around Calgary. They have however hosted a number of private events, some of ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Salzberg and DeLuca Finally Respond to Vancouver Failure; DeLuca Blames CAP and SoO

When the members of the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (based primarily in Alberta) and the Cultural Action Party (based almost exclusively in British Columbia) along with the Soldiers of Odin no-showed their own rally just because at least 4,000 people showed up who would have none of their shit, Joey DeLuca and Brad Salzberg were ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Vancouver: Massive Counter-Protest While WCAI No-Show

Joey DeLuca and Jesse Wielenga of WCAI have been in the news as a result of their plans to hold a rally in Vancouver along with the Cultural Action Party and Soldiers of Odin. The media coverage has focused in part on the hypocrisy of Deluca claiming to be a “law and order” advocate despite ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: WCAI Rally In Vancouver August 19 and the Charlottesville Terrorist Attack

Decent people are still mourning the death of Heather Heyer who was murdered by a Nazi supporter in Charlottesville during an "alt-right" rally. Among those decent people, the POTUS is not among them. The current occupant of the White House, after his previous moral failure in suggesting an equivalency between the fascists who called for the ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: WCAI and CCC Coming to Terms With Their Ineffectiveness

Still away of course and knowing myself as I do, at this point in my vacation I have probably desperately tried to locate a museum, art gallery, or library and have threatened my sister with great bodily harm for pestering me about going shopping for the umpteenth time at the exact same generic mall one ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Alberta III%

Yep, I’m still away and hopefully stretched out on a beach enjoying a Cuba Libre, though given my constitution more than likely laid up in a hotel room regretting not getting that Dukoral booster with a sunburn so bad you could roast a marshmallow using the heat radiating off my body. Either way, here is another ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Soldiers of Odin: A Spent Force But Members and Former Members Still Potential Danger

This article is scheduled to be published automatically on July 1. The writer for ARC will not be available that day because there are bbq hamburgers, beaver tails, and beers that need to be consumed. A little over two weeks ago, the Soldiers of Odin in BC were present at a protest outside a mosque ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: WCAI Islamophobic "Mega" Rally May Have Been Self-Quelled

An alternative title for this article could be "Everyone I Don't Agree With Is Funded By George Soros." In one week, the MASSIVE and GAME CHANGING rally MEGA RALLY is set to take place somewhere in Calgary, though the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI) and Canadian Combat Coalition (CCC) who are organizing it have been ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Racist WCAI Memebers Don’t Like Being Called Racists

Today a report was released detailing a significant rise in hate crimes against Muslim-Canadians across the country in 2015 according to Stats Canada: The number of police-reported hate crimes against Muslims jumped by 60 per cent in 2015 compared to the previous year, according to Statistics Canada.  New data released Tuesday show there were 159 ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Public Urination and The Fallout From The Protests in Calgary and Ottawa

Now that I have your attention…. Joey De Luca, Jesse Wielenga, Devon Mannix. and Ryan Dean have been basking in the glow of what they believe to have been a wildly successful protest at Calgary City Hall this past Saturday: Yes, a huge success…. despite the fact that the location they situated themselves in and the ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Making Fun of WCAI and CCC…. Because Why Not?

This weekend, WCAI and CCC are holding a protest at Olympic Plaza in Calgary, Alberta (as opposed to the MEGA rally on June 24). But before then ARC would like to first recount the heroism of the people who went to Red Deer to stand up to the injustice occurring at Lindsay Thurber High School. ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Racism and Violence Within WCAI and Canadian Combat Coalition

It seems that Joey De Luca is having an especially bad day: Based on what De Luca's friend and ally Ryan "Alberta" Dean of the Canadian Combat Coalition states, these posters were found today in Calgary and they are all pretty pissed off about it: Given that Ryan Dean is the same fella who created ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: WCAI, Canadian Combat Coalition, Soldiers of Odin, and Others Harass Staff and Students At Red Deer High School

Yesterday I alluded to an event being planned by the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI) and others that would not be discussed until after the event took place. I and others in the know wanted to be sure to (a) make certain the school and the police were aware of the plans and (b) we ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: WCAI Planning June 24 Rally; Hilarity Inevitable

The Worldwide Coalition Against Islam (WCAI Canada) in concert with the Canadian Combat Coalition (again, really?) is planning three events in the coming few weeks. The first is one that will not be discussed until after it takes place; I believe ARC's readers will understand why I made this decision when it is reported on. ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Infighting Amongst Canadian Islamophobes: Part 7 – Meanwhile in Toronto….

As the founder, lead writer, and currently sole member of ARC, I often find it funny that the people who are the quickest to diminish the reach and influence (such as it is) of the blog are among ARC's most dedicated readers. Case in point, the article posted on May 16 detailing the criminal records ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: What Was Learned From Islamophobe Rally in Ottawa on May 6

The following is the second article submitted by an Ottawa area-based reader and activist who has been researching the Soldiers of Odin and associated individuals and groups. The first article focused on white supremacists within the Ottawa-Gatineau SoO). This article is focuses on what was learned from the May 6 Islamophobe protest that occurred on ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Criminality Within WCAI’s Leadership

The fallout from WCAI's Joey De Luca and his dispute with the Alberta Citizens Coalition (ACC) over the planned Edmonton protest at the legislature and subsequent decision to hold his own event in Calgary while at the same time sabotage the event in Edmonton continues today: If there's one thing we've come to learn about ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Soldiers of Odin Continue to Disintegrate

Our friends in the Soldiers of Odin are continuing to have a rough go of it lately: Having their social media presence disrupted is certainly an inconvenience, but bitter curmudgeon Joe Clark (who has been a fan of ARC for a number of years) has alluded to a much more significant problem: Meet Mike Montague, ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: White Supremacist Threat in Ottawa-Gatineau: The Local Soldiers of Odin

The following is an article that was submitted by a reader and activist who lives in the Ottawa area and who has been researching the Soldiers of Odin and associated individuals and groups for some time. This article is especially relevant considering the Canadian leadership of the SoO claim they have broken with Finland over ...

Anti-Racist Canada: The ARC Collective: Journalist Assaulted By Anti-Muslim Protesters in Toronto

ARC has just learned that there was an incident at the anti-Muslim rally yesterday. It seems that the Islamophobic "free speech" protesters opposed to M103 decided to assault a journalist engaging in freedom of expression (and the press) because they didn't approve of HIS "free speech." Meet Spencer Polap, pictured here with now defacto Conservative ...
