But some have pointed out that the term has been used more recently by those on the far-right to differentiate white people from immigrants and people of colour.

"It's a way to basically set apart those who are white in Canada, who are white Anglo-Saxon, from everyone else and certainly [from] the racialized segment of society," Fareed Khan, the founder of Canadians United Against Hate, told CTV News.
