The far-left movement Antifa is not just an idea.
Organizers of the Canada Day protests along with independent journalists are receiving threats from members of militant left-wing movement Antifa.
Journalist Andy Lee received a message from an Antifa account telling her “you are being put on notice and actively investigated now.”
The same account sent similar threats to others, including journalists at Toronto 99.
Members of Antifa were spotted in Ottawa on Thursday carrying squeaky toys and placards.
Antifa member James Kelly announced online he plans on using violence against Canada Day protesters, reminding his followers on Twitter to buy eggs.
The eggs are meant to be used as a weapon against people that Antifa disapproves of.
UPDATE: The protests on Canada Day were peaceful and there were no reports of violence from Antifa. Left-wing counter-protesters were observed in Ottawa on Canada Day. Read more about our editorial standards.
