Canadian Government Says It's Concerned That Calling Far-Right Terrorists 'Far-Right' Could Seem 'Biased' - 2020-02-07
The federal government department tasked with leading Canada's response to terrorist threats says it is adopting a new "bias-sensitive approach" to the way it talks about far-right terrorism.
That's what Public Safety Canada's said after internal documents revealed CSIS and the RCMP met with top departmental officials to debate semantics over "right-wing extremism" and "far-right" terrorism a few months before a neo-Nazi group was added to Canada's terrorism list.
The documents, obtained by PressProgress through Access-to-Information, were first reported late last month by the Canadian Press. The documents feature Power Point slides from an April 2019 meetings between top officials at Public Safety Canada, CSIS and the RCMP.
