TORONTO — The far-right group Soldiers of Odin has splintered in Canada after the two main factions turned against each other in a dispute over whether to remain aligned with their racist namesake in northern Europe.

The split began last week when the president of Soldiers of Odin Canada, Bill Daniels, denounced the "racist agenda" of Soldiers of Odin leaders in Finland and said his branch was no longer associated with them.

"Their ridiculous belief in racism has always been a huge issue for us in Canada as we do not support or share their views on race," Daniels said on Facebook, calling the Finnish leaders "racist, unorganized, reckless" thugs.
