The Current Reality

Hate groups are growing steadily and are currently at levels not seen in Canada since the 1920's. The League for Human Rights has measured a 200% increase in reported anti-Semitic incidents since 1988. This evidence has been corroborated by police and community groups documenting racially motivated crime.

Hate groups such as the Aryan Nations, Heritage Front, Church of the Creator, Ku Klux Klan, Northern Foundation and the Mountain Church are all actively recruiting young people in Canada today.

Recently, established white supremacist groups have attempted to co-opt the "skinhead" movement. While not all skinheads are racist, many in Canada are, and show a propensity towards violence. Since 1990, at least 24 racially or sexually motivated murders have been committed by skinheades in North America.
