The Proud Boys, a neo-fascist and male-only white nationalist political organization that promotes and engages in political violence in the United States and Canada, has been labelled a terrorist organization by Canada. This group has been known to engage in domestic violence and was involved in the US presidential election related attack on the US capitol on January 6, 2021 at the behest of the then President, Donald Trump.
Canada, a close ally of the United States, is the first country to designate the Proud Boys a terrorist group. Public Safety Minister, Bill Blair, said the decision was influenced by the group’s “pivotal role” in the January 6 riots at the Capitol in Washington, DC.
