Anti-Hate Canada also explains that convoy organizers have expressed support for anti-Muslim hate groups such as Canadian Combat Coalition, Soldiers of Odin, and Worldwide Coalition Against Islam.

Yellow Vests Canada Exposed has uncovered evidence that far-right, anti-Muslim media outlet Free Bird Media is with the convoy. The founder of Free Bird Media is connected to neo-Nazi Paul From, Faith Goldy and James Sears, who was recently found guilty of promoting hate.
