Canada's foreign affairs minister says violent white supremacists and other far-right groups threaten the country's stability and should be the primary focus of the international community's counter-terrorism efforts, including by stopping the spread of hate online.

Chrystia Freeland told the United Nations Security Council on March 28 that she felt a "personal responsibility" to denounce white supremacist attacks "as the foreign minister of a majority white and majority Christian country."

The minister referred to the attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, where a white supremacist gunned down 50 Muslims at two mosques who were gathered for Friday prayers. "As a Canadian, this attack was all too familiar," she said. "Two years ago, a terrorist killed six people in a Quebec City mosque."
