Yesterday an anti-immigrant rally took place in Quebec City featuring some groups we are well aware of and a few that are knew to us (yes, our Quebec intel still sucks): Anti-immigration groups are heard in QuebecPUBLISHED Saturday, October 15, 2016 13 H 38

For a while, we at ARC seemed to be one of the few groups who were keeping an eye on the Soldiers of Odin, the vigilante group that began in Finland that was founded by a number of overt neo-Nazis. The movement eventually sprang up in other countries, including Canada. As of this date, there’s a branch or support group in almost every province in Canada.
Today, Mack Lamoureux again, this time writing for the CBC, has highlighted the group’s activities in Edmonton:
Canadian president says local chapters ‘not affiliated’ with white supremacy
By Mack Lamoureux, CBC News Posted: Sep 03, 2016 6:00 AM MT Last Updated: Sep 03, 2016 7:25 PM MT
A few interesting points:
“At this stage, we have a group of people that have associated [themselves] with a group that are internationally extremely negative,” Jones said. “In the city of Edmonton context that we have right now, we have seen no violence, no complaints, no threats, nothing criminal.”
Jones said police have spoken to the group.
“They are reporting they are not the same type of group, that they are not anti-immigration or radical right.”
Well, that might be a hard case to make when, in order to be recognized as an official branch of the international Soldiers of Odin movement, a new national branch needs the approval of the original Finish branch:
“People think we’re some sort of white power group,” Joel Agnott, the SOO national president, told CBC News in early August. “We’re not affiliated with any of that. We have had a few of those members, and we’ve kicked them out.”
Yeah, we’re still able to find a lot of “those members.” For just one example, a quick look at the SOO Edmonton support page brings this guy to our attention:
“Jay Cam” has been profiled on the blog briefly before. He at one time was an administrator for the Canadians United 4 Canada Facebook group. Oh, and he’s associated with Kyle McKee’s Blood & Honour chapter.
Perhaps our readers would like to take a closer look at his profile photo
Also Joel Agnott has some interesting ties to people we’re able to link to McKee’s Blood & Honour faction (we’ll be addressing this in a future article) as well as to Ernst Zundel’s wife and fellow Holocaust denier Ingrid Rimland
which in and of itself cause our spidey senses to start tingling:

Last Friday we wrote about Christopher Hayes
who was arrested for making threats towards Prime Minister Trudeau
on social media. We also posted comments defending said threats as “freedom of speech.” We also learned that Hayes was a supporter, if not a member, of the Saskatchewan chapter of Soldiers of Odin:
We didn’t initially notice, but upon a second look we found that Chris Hayes’ arrest had been discussed in a thread originally begun by an individual who claimed Chris as a brother:
The thread continued today:
This is interesting, in that another supporter (or member) of the Soldiers of Odin, David Rhinelander, has admitted to being investigated for threats made on social media.
Of additional interest is that Michael “Mjohn” Hayes is a leader within the Saskatchewan chapter of the Sons of Odin; he has been listed as the Oxbow chapter president:

Okay, the title of this article could rightfully be accused of being click bait and of being unfair to Brian Jean, but it is also an accurate title.
Much like the late Rob Ford was photographed a an event with an individual well known to those familiar with the racist movement in Canada, so too was Brian Jean, leader of the Wildrose Party of Alberta who posed for this photo with Jonathan Besler we presume at the Calgary Stampede:
Given Besler’s attitude toward the current NDP government in Alberta, perhaps we shouldn’t be too surprised that he would gravitate towards the Wildrose Part as an alternative….

Back in March we ran an article
linking Canadians United 4 Canada to the Soldiers of Odin, a movement that started in Finland but which has spread to a number of other countries including Canada.
Among those Finnish members are this guy:
Mr. Johansson’s friend list might be of interest to readers on this side of the Atlantic:
Our original article on the SOO focused specifically on the Quebec wing and noted the Quebec group consisted of a number of overt neo-Nazis. Not surprisingly SOO members and supporters denied being members of an overt hate group, going so far as to print leaflets promoting their non-bigoted bona fides:
Later, a journalist writing for VICE picked up on the story (while also kindly linking to our article on the SOO) resulting in some concern from at least one provincial SOO wing:
Btw, if Blake Cunliffe is concerned about how SOO might be portrayed in the media, he might decide to desist advocating political assassinations:
While we are no longer privy to the Soldiers of Odin’s BC wing as they appear to have removed our dummy Facebook profile, we did notice that no one really ultimately challenged the underlying claims made in the article. Had they done so though, they might have had to explain this fella:

When one is challenging groups such as PEGIDA Canada the accusation that the membership and supporters of similar groups hold racist views is countered by the statement that, "Islam is not a race."

It would appear that McKee's Blood & Honour and Hynes' Southern Ontario "Skinheads" have decided to continue their little spat on our blog.
