I get the impression that Canada's hate speech laws are narrow and rarely enforced, but would they still be enough to make it difficult for KKK members to hold a rally? Or at least more difficult than in the US?

I have never heard of a kkk rally here in Canada. I vaguely remember seeing something on tv about a neo nazi/skin head march in Ottawa though. This was in the 90s.

Ask Jim Keegstra if hate speech laws are rarely enforced.
He will tell that is simply not true.

Nazi and KKK are not the the same.

I know that. They are both hate groups though. They have been known to march together on occasion.

Seriously messed up. So many better things for people to do then coming up with creative fashion accessories for hate clubs .

I think of it got enough attention they could shut it down or tgere would be protestors. Ex Roosh V and even Bill Cosby certainly provoked enough social outrage to get people up in arms .... so I would expect a larger reaction to something like this.

In this or country I woukd be happy to join a counter protest to ensure their nasty hate message was drowned out by the voices of people in this country that are against this pathetic nonsense.

I lump all the angry people out to cause hate and conflict in to the same category..... enemies of peace and global well being. A danger and threat that should not be ignored.
