In an interview on CTV’s Question Period, Blair said Canadian national security officials are actively gathering intelligence about groups such as the Proud Boys on an ongoing basis.

“We're very mindful of ideologically-motivated violent extremists, including groups like the Proud Boys.

“We're working very diligently to ensure that where the evidence is available, where we have the intelligence, that we’ll deal appropriately with those organizations.”.

In a statement, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole said his party supports the listing of “various white supremacist groups” as terrorist organizations. »

The suspension, which will go into effect on Sunday just before midnight, means that Parler will be unable to operate and will go offline unless it can find another hosting service.

This is considered to be around the middle stratosphere, and thus a good representation of the general dynamics of the polar vortex.
