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.

“In recent weeks, anti-Muslim and anti-Sikh posters also cropped up on two university campuses in Alberta. It is unclear who was behind the incidents. Police are investigating.

“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.

“But for researchers like James Ellis, who is affiliated with the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society (TSAS), they come as no surprise.

‘”At the national level, there seems to be less of a concern about right-wing extremism (than other forms),” he said.”
