the official added that any crimes committed by members of the group can now be the subject of terrorism charges under criminal law. Those potential crimes include providing a terrorist group with funds or other assistance — such as purchasing Proud Boys paraphernalia or clothing from the group, although displaying or wearing them publicly breaks no laws.

Recruitment, travel and training related to the group can now also lead to criminal charges. Additionally, authorities have more power to remove its online posts, add its members to the no-fly list and deny entry at the border to group members who are not Canadian.

Mr. Blair said the designation will “severely restrict” the group’s ability to use online crowdfunding in Canada or any other fund-raising method.

Bank accounts belonging to the group, officials said, could be seized or frozen, although Mr. Blair, citing intelligence confidentiality, declined to say what assets, if any, the Proud Boys have in Canada. Individual members’ accounts will not be affected unless they are being used for operations by the group.

In its designation, the Canadian government said members of the Proud Boys “espouse misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, and/or white supremacist ideologies and associate with white supremacist groups.”

Some military reservist went looking for Trudeau on his property while armed to the teeth with firearms.  Dude was looking to kill our PM.  He pled guilty to several charges.

The violent far-right are al-Qaeda.

I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
