Four Conservative leadership candidates will be going to a rally protesting a motion to condemn racism and religious discrimination organized by an alt-right website and taking place at a college run by a far-right, homophobic preacher.

Kellie Leitch, Chris Alexander, Pierre Lemieux and Brad Trost are all lined-up to speak at Rebel Media's "Freedom Rally" Wednesday night at the Canada Christian College in protest of M-103 – a non-binding motion calling on the House of Commons to condemn "systemic racism and religious discrimination" in Canada.

But the motion's focus on "Islamophobia" and "the increasing public climate of hate and fear" has been fodder for Internet conspiracy theories falsely claiming the government is making it illegal to criticize Muslims, a theory popularized by Ezra Levant's alt-right Rebel Media website – who are also organizing the event.
