In just three months, more than 250 Canadian and international companies – including banks, post-secondary institutions, car manufacturers and major retailers – have confirmed they will pull their ads from Rebel Media, according to an online group that targets far-right websites.

An anonymous spokesperson for Sleeping Giants Canada told iPolitics Wednesday the group has seen an uptick in the number of companies agreeing to block their online ads from appearing on the ultra-conservative media outlet since Saturday – when Rebel commentator Faith Goldy appeared to sympathize with white supremacists at a protest in Charlottesville, Va. that turned deadly.

"There for sure has been an increase in the number of companies since the weekend," the spokesperson wrote in a private Twitter message.
