Feb. 17, 2021 – RCMP in Saskatchewan have charged the leader of the Canadian Nationalist Party with willfully promoting hate against an identifiable group.

Police say officers began investigating Travis Patron after a report in June 2019 from the Canadian Anti-Hate Network about an alleged anti-Semitic video posted on YouTube.

Police say the video, called “Beware the Parasitic Tribe,” featured the party leader from Redvers, Sask., in the province’s southeast.

The party’s website says its mandate is to keep a “European-descended demographic majority” in Canada.

Advertisment

RCMP say its investigation was forwarded to the province’s justice minister, who directed the charge.

Police say the 29-year-old was arrested Monday and is scheduled to appear today in Regina provincial court.

Mounties say they are still investigating four more reports it received between last April and June of alleged anti-Semitic videos and hate speech by Patron.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Feb. 17, 2021.
