Jagmeet Singh says link exists between anti-maskers and far-right extremism

Federal New Democratic Party Leader Jagmeet Singh says he believes there’s a connection between anti-mask and anti-lockdown protests and far-right extremism, The Canadian Press reports.

The latest numbers on COVID-19 in Canada for Thursday, April 29, 2021

  The latest numbers on COVID-19 in Canada for Thursday, April 29, 2021 The latest numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Canada as of 4 a.m. ET on Thursday, April 29, 2021. There are 1,202,737 confirmed cases in Canada. _ Canada: 1,202,737 confirmed cases (83,354 active, 1,095,266 resolved, 24,117 deaths).*The total case count includes 13 confirmed cases among repatriated travellers. There were 7,751 new cases Wednesday. The rate of active cases is 219.32 per 100,000 people. Over the past seven days, there have been a total of 55,276 new cases. The seven-day rolling average of new cases is 7,897. There were 54 new reported deaths Wednesday. Over the past seven days there have been a total of 350 new reported deaths.

Singh’s comments come as rallies against COVID-19 health orders are being staged across the country while many provincial doctors battle a deadly third wave of the pandemic.

These demonstrations have been met with frustration from some in the public over what they say appears to be a lack of police enforcement, and a few premiers have promised stiffer fines for COVID-19 rule-breakers.

Singh says some of the people being drawn to recent protests are affiliated with far-right groups.

He says he sees a connection between those refusing to follow public-health advice and the ideology of the extreme right because both show a disregard for the well-being of others and put people at risk.

Singh says refusing to listen to COVID-19 health orders is dangerous and needs to be called out.
