FORT McMurray, October 2, 2020. At 9:15 this morning, no fewer than six members of the local RCMP detachment raided a townhouse here shared by political activist and former political prisoner Brad Love with four other people. A warrant, dated September 30, authorized the masked Mounties to search for “glue, ‘Keep Canada White’ posters and copies of The Canadian Immigration Hotline“, published for over 30 years by the William Hopkinson Society.
Mr. Love, a vocal critic of Canada’s failed immigration policy, has been a frequent target of police harassment for his having called the local newspaper and politicians to call them to account. Previous charges have usually been withdrawn at the last minute.
Mr. Love reports that the raid which lasted over two hours, also involved searches of the bedrooms of the other men with whom he shared the house.
The warrant authorizing the search for glue and literature sought evidence for “mischief under $5,000.” The police carted away a box of items for which they provided Mr. Love with no receipt.
“Somebody is putting up pamphlets,” one of the officers told Mr. Love. “It’s not about free speech, Brad.”
When advised of the raid, Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression commented: “Sadly, under this reign of Cultural Marxism, our police forces are increasingly becoming political police.”
