What it means when an extremist group is added to Canada's list of terrorist organizations - 2019-08-22
In June, Canada added neo-Nazi group Blood & Honour and its armed wing Combat 18 (C18) to the federal list of outlawed terrorist organizations, the first time right-wing extremist groups were included on the list that now includes 60 groups.
The addition of these groups was praised by many extremism experts and anti-racist advocates as a positive — and overdue — step in tackling the rise of the far right.
While it is not a crime to be on the list, the designation allows law enforcement to go after the finances and assets of the groups. It also becomes an offence to support them financially and prohibits anyone from knowingly participating in or contributing to the activities of listed groups.
