Like pollutants in a river, overt racism has surfaced again in Canada. It is based on a fear of being overtaken by "the other" but is disguised as a "preference" for the white race in the interest of the "preservation" of Canadian identity. It sets its sights mainly on Muslims and non-white people as well as on Jews, feminists, LGBTQ2 groups.

Individuals who hold extreme right-wing views are predominantly active online, it said, thriving on a "culture of fear, hatred and mistrust by exploiting real or imagined concerns."

Public Safety Canada's annual report on terrorist threats to Canada listed for the first time this year right-wing extremism as "a growing concern."
