When the Canadian Nationalist Party decided to go legit they may not have read the fine print too carefully.

The upstart far-right party followed the rules and filled out the forms. Now, in the final step before filing their application, they're attempting to get 250 signatures from members. However, since it's a political party, their information becomes a matter of public record. So that paperwork becomes a bit of an issue when you're a party best known for nationalistic and bigoted rhetoric.

Now, in an attempt to keep the party from registering, the Canadian Anti-Hate Network (CAN) is openly stating they will access that information and publicize the names of the 250 supporters. At last count, the party has 214 of 250 signatures and many of those may have come from people who did not know they would be publicly associated with the party. By all accounts, it seems the last 36 will have to come from people who knowingly will publicly connect themselves to the party.
