Editorial: Fight extremism
https://edmontonjournal.com/opinion/...ight-extremism

Quote:
The province has a history of producing more than its share of zealots. In 1930, the Ku Klux Klan had 50 chapters in Alberta with up to 8,000 members.

It didn’t help that federal politicians such as Andrew Scheer and Maxime Bernier gave speeches in February to a travelling yellow-vest protest where pipeline advocacy was tainted with anti-immigrant rhetoric and calls for violence.
Quote:
As the report notes, Alberta lacks sufficient awareness, training and the capacity to fight extremist views. Agencies and programs that combat hate need more educational resources, training and co-ordination.
