Label the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) a terrorist organization in Canada

Dear Prime Minister, The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau 

Canadians have a deep investment in seeing themselves as more enlightened than their counterparts to the south, as if racism and bigotry suddenly stop at the U.S./Canada border. But the racial haven narrative of Canada is a myth, and the idea that anti-Semitism, racism and anti-immigrant hatred is “not as bad” as in the States is a dangerous one.

We are asking for your help to extinguish the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and label them a terrorist organization. 

Last year, dozens of homes in Chilliwack, B.C., received flyers from the “loyal white knights of the Ku Klux Klan” that encouraged white people to rise up, be proud, and to “secure a future for white children.” Similar literature has been distributed door-to-door in nearby towns in Mission and Abbottsford.

Even though many Canadians are starting to tweak to the idea that their country “isn’t immune to racist violence and hate” (as you Sir, have recently tweeted), the KKK’s arrival might still seem a little out of left field, since that group is linked in the general cultural imagination to the American deep south. But if you think the Klan is new to Canada, think again—there were hooded men in Canada in the 1920s and again in the late 1970s. And we likely haven’t seen the last of it; when it comes to franchise opportunities, the hate group is, at its core, an aggressively expansionist as any burger chain or coffee shop.

What we learned from our last journey down a similar road was that being smug about our own virtue and blind to our own systemic racism and white nationalist groups only made it easier for KKK Kanada to set up shop, under the guise of being a milder, more polite version of hate. Of course, there’s no such thing. Not then. And not now, either.

We must take a stand together to abolish the  KKK and all Hate groups!!! These hate groups are terrorist and must be labeled as terrorist

Most Respectfully, from all of us caring Canadians
