Extremists in B.C. making news in British press.

BBC online is carrying this story of hate-group activities in B.C. and Alberta.

“In the middle of the night in early October, Ku Klux Klan flyers stuffed into Ziploc bags landed on the doorsteps of a few dozen homes in two British Columbia towns.

“Similar flyers were dropped in a neighbouring community over the summer.

“These events contrast with Canada’s image as an open, multicultural society, and one that recently opened its doors to over 30,000 Syrian refugees.
