Senator David Tkachuk used taxpayer money to expense a year-long subscription to Rebel Media, a far-right media outlet that engages in anti-Muslim attacks and employs the founder of an organization designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

Twitter user Chris Johnston discovered the payment at the Senate of Canada expenses website.

This story follows the release of a troubling video of Senator Tkachuk speaking at the far-right Yellow Vests convoy in Ottawa. In the video he called on attendees to engage in political violence, saying they should "roll over" their political opponents.
