Paul Fromm is perhaps the leading Canadian far Right leader.  Fromm has decades of involvement with the Canadian organized hate movement, from the Edmund Burke Society to the Western Guard to the Heritage Front to a myriad number of white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups.  The Southern Poverty Law Centre tells us this:

From 1974 until 1997, Fromm served as a public school teacher with the Peel Region Board of Education. He was fired from his position after speaking at several Heritage Front events, one of which fell on Hitler’s birthday. A video of the December 9, 1990, event captured Fromm, in front of a Nazi flag, speaking to a crowd shouting “Sieg Heil!,” “white power,” “Hail The Order!,” and “nigger, nigger, nigger, out out out,” while performing the Nazi salute. He also hailed John Ross Taylor, a Canadian fascist, as a “hero.” 

Fromm spoke at the “Students For Free Speech” rally in support of the Proud Boys’ “Halifax 5” at Queen’s Park on Saturday.  Incredibly, the Jewish Defence League were there providing security for the event.  (How they could not notice the presence of Canada’s most notorious Holocaust denier is beyond my understanding, but there you go.)

Anyway.  Below is a photo of Fromm at the event.  It makes clear that Rebel Media/Gavin McInnes’ Proud Boys are now openly associated with Holocaust denial and neo-Naziism.

It also suggests to me that all of this is going to get worse before it gets better.

Look who is in our morning New York Times. It’s a smart strategy by U. S. Governors: go around Unpresident Donald Trump. Link here.

And it’s smart on Justin Trudeau’s part, too. I’d personally like to see him speak up against the myriad Trump outrages, periodically. But this strategy is needed, as well. 

What’s amazing about this isn’t that some guy decided to operate an electronic remote control dog on the subway. What’s amazing (to me, at last) is that not a single person – not one – cracked a smile, frowned, or in any way reacted to what he was doing. 

We are so, so Canadian.

(And apologies for the portrait mode. I was on my way back from a much-needed haircut, ans I wasn’t quite expecting to be filming something like this.)

If you are young (at heart), creative, smart, in T.O., political (but not actually too partisan), we want to hear from you.

Warren Kinsella, a Toronto-based political consultant and commentator who is a staunch opponent of Fromm’s, disagrees.

“Public services are not supposed to be used to promote discrimination. The library in Etobicoke is doing that,” he said.

Warren Kinsella says “public services are not supposed to be used to promote discrimination,” and that the library is doing that. 

“They’re providing a platform for neo-Nazis and white supremacists and that’s outrageous.”

Kinsella is concerned this event may start a trend. He said if the library allows this group in, “there will be many more such groups,” which will “cause division and intimidate lots of people.”

Two things. One, I’m delighted we have John Tory on our side. (I’m irritated that an actual monkey was asked to write a legal opinion for the addled librarians, here. But that will be remedied in due course.)

Two, this is yet another reason my wife should run for city council. I know she would have worked with Tory, Pasternak and the others to stop this hate fest from happening. 

The fight continues.

UPDATE: Solid story from Torontoist here.

UPDATED: Another story, here. I’ll be on CBC abut it tonight, apparently.

As has been the case since I was eight years old and living in Texas, I will be cheering for the apes.

Also, I am cancelling a fun weekend trip to be at the first showing on the first day.

Yes, I have problems.
