Quebec City police arrest 44 at far-right protest and counter-demonstration

La Meute and Storm Alliance had a very successful day… Antifa not so much

Supporters of Quebec’s far-right outnumbered counter-protesters at a demonstration Saturday in Quebec City, where police detained more than 40 people in an effort to keep the two sides from clashing with each other.

Between 300 and 400 members of far-right groups, including La Meute and Storm Alliance, marched in the rain to a convention centre that was hosting a major policy meeting of the governing Quebec Liberal party.

    Note that the CBC News article on this demo confrontation said that the rightist-nationalist side (LA Meute) outnumbered the left-wing militants, 400 to 250. We could learn something from how the right side works in Quebec.

    • I did note that. A good sign.

          I do it deliberatlely on lefty sites that use Disqus.

          Drives them insane.

        Yup, so I corrected thst, thanks. I never to that on pupose. No need to, although I don’t get many up votes.

      La Meute leadership is a lot more disciplined because many are former military and reports say La Meute has cops and people who work in government within their ranks as well.

      Their aim mainly being protecting Quebec French culture keeps
      them focused as well, unlike other groups who are all over the place.

      Rise Canada and PEGIDA Canada on the other hand is full of riff raff
      who just rant and rave like lunitics uploading shitty quality videos on Youtube
      where the guy holding the camera won’t shut up so you can hear what
      someone speaking is saying.

  • Well said;)

    The dishonesty of labelling them “far-right” or even “right-wing” is getting more than disgusting. Seeking to protect your culture, your way of life and your country from foreign invaders has nothing to do with the right or the left; in truth it is nonpartisan. Every time these false labels are trotted out, they need to be rejected and those using them must be exposed for their lies.

      The islamofascist in Canada love the CBC and STAR because every jihad slaughter gets covered-up as mental illness or the person has NOTHING to do with being a muslims. They also have the benefit of crying racism to silence people when islam is not a race of people.

      But the new laws for gender expression means that the CBC must accept a man that Self-Identifies as a women but if he converts to islam and goes JIHAD …..he’s still reported as a Women but is denied Self-identifying as a Muslim.
      So the News is ” A Mentally ill women ” took her life with a bomb that got innocent people killed while the Police have NO motive after talking to her Imam and poured over his quran for a written message of hate or hate speech on her prayer rug.

  • Ho Hum

    Very encouraged to see the nationalists outnumbered the leftists also it would appear that all of those arrested were antifa .

      Collapsible batons are legal in Canada so long as you carry them clearly visible. Open in the your hand not so much.

      Weapons laws structured in Canada in such a way that there is a greater
      focus on intent, then what it is you have on you… ie there there no actual
      length restrictions on knives, only how you are carrying it, where you have it
      and what reason you would have to doing so.
