Proud Boys Canada, named by Ottawa as a terrorist entity, says it's dissolving - 2021-05-02
Proud Boys Canada, a far-right group that Ottawa named as a terrorist entity earlier this year, has dissolved itself, saying it has done nothing wrong, according to a statement by the organization on Sunday.
In February, Canada said the group posed an active security threat and played a "pivotal role" in the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol in January by supporters of then-president Donald Trump. U.S. authorities have charged several members of the Proud Boys in connection with the Jan. 6 assault.
"The truth is, we were never terrorists or a white supremacy group," the statement posted by the administrator of the official Proud Boys channel on Telegram said.
