The Trudeau Liberals did not examine left-wing extremist groups, such as Antifa, for inclusion on its list of banned terror groups, reports True North.
The list was announced in February of this year, and added several ISIS and al-Qaeda affiliates, as well as Atomwaffen, the Russian Imperial Movement, The Base, and The Proud Boys.
The Liberals, however, did not so much as consider reviewing Antifa to be included on its list. According to documents obtained in a Access to Information request, the Department of Safety did not send any documents related to Antifa-related groups to the Minister.
After requesting memos and briefing notes asking for documents related to several Antifa groups, True North found that the government was "unable" to locate any records related to the groups.
"A thorough search was conducted and Public Safety Canada was unable to locate any records responding to your request," wrote a manager with Access to Information and Privacy in response to the request.
One of the groups listed was the Resistance Internationaliste, who bombed a Canadian Forces recruitment centre in Trois Rivieres, Quebec, as well as other targets between 2004 and 2010.
Trudeau's terrorist report has a heavy emphasis on extremism on the right, but lacks any mention of left-wing extremism, despite repeated instances of violence being recorded.
Former president Donald Trump had previously said while in office that he would push to make Antifa, as well as the KKK, designated as terrorist groups.
