Holocaust remembrance day: Trudeau says ‘dark corners’ of antisemitism on the rise in Canada

Speaking at a Holocaust Remembrance Day memorial in Ottawa on Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned about growing antisemitism across the country and complacency in times of peace. “Lately, we have seen hateful and antisemitic rhetoric coming from dark corners of our society. Canadians were horrified to see Nazi flags brought to Ottawa last year. It had a chilling effect,” Trudeau said, referencing a Nazi flag flown during the so-called “Freedom Convoy” protests last February. Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre called on Canadians to fight what he called the “evil” that led to the Holocaust.
