‘Anti-Hate’ Southern Poverty Law Center Partner Funds Violent Canadian Antifa
Behind the op-ed was an outfit called the Canadian Anti-Hate Network (CAN), a self-described "hate-monitoring" organization based in Toronto. Not only does CAN model itself on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), it maintains a partnership with the group, which has included receiving SPLC funding and support.
Unsurprisingly, the two appear to follow the same business model. Just like the SPLC, CAN makes inflated and fear-mongering claims about the number of threatening "hate groups" operating in Canada. While the SPLC outlandishly puts the number of such groups in the United States at more than 1,000, CAN officials put the number in Canada around 300, a far higher figure considering the country's relatively tiny population.
