More than 3,300 people have pledged to come out to a protest against a nationalist anti-immigration rally being held in Toronto next month, a wave of support that vastly outnumbers those who have indicated they will attend the controversial event.

News of the rally — and the plan for a counter-protest — spread across social media just days after a demonstration involving white supremacists, neo-Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan in Charlottesville, Va., and anti-racism advocates ended with three people dead.

And the protest in Toronto began as a call from Shannon McDeez to some of her friends on Facebook. It was prompted by the fact that alongside events like those in Charlottesville and the rise of the alt-right, there's been a normalization of racism and hate speech, she told CBC Toronto.
