Group Run By Canadian Neo-Nazi Received Federal COVID Relief Funds


Paul Fromm Nazi Canada Hamilton finance subsidy

A group run by a notorious Canadian neo-Nazi was one of the recipients of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS), a program meant to provide short-term financial support for companies that have seen a sharp decline in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic, VICE World News has learned.

The revelation has prompted anti-hate advocates to urge the federal government to reconsider which companies are eligible to receive federal funding.

The Canadian Association for Free Expression led by Paul Fromm, a self-identified white nationalist and long-time leader of Canada’s far-right movement, received an undisclosed amount through the program, according to an online database of CEWS recipients made public by the Canada Revenue Agency on Monday.

The database does not show how much funding each company received under the $54-billion program, nor when each company received the subsidy. More than 368,000 businesses, charities, and non-profit groups have received federal wage subsidies since it came into effect in April.

A spokesperson for the Canada Revenue Agency did not answer questions from VICE World News about the nature of Fromm’s group citing privacy reasons.  (more...)
