Anti-Islam group member attacks Trudeau for making ‘revolting connections’ between organization and Quebec mosque shooter

MONTREAL — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had no regrets Tuesday for his veiled insult against members of a nationalist, far-right group during a speech in Quebec City in honour of the victims of the 2017 Quebec City mosque shooting.

Capping off four days of commemorations Monday night for the six men killed last January, Trudeau spoke out against racism as well as people he called “dumdums,” who wear clothing with images of a paw print.

The paw print is a symbol for La Meute, a member of which replied to Trudeau on the group’s Facebook page Tuesday by hurling insults at the prime minister.
