German European Parliament Member Christine Anderson responded to accusations of racism and hate made by Canadian political figures in an interview with True North. She also voiced her support for Canada’s Freedom Convoy movement.

Anderson, who has become both a popular and controversial figure in Canada, held a cross-country tour with sold-out events in Calgary, Cambridge, Toronto, Whitby and Montreal.

She also met with Conservative MPs Colin Carrie, Dean Allison and Leslyn Lewis, which led to leader Pierre Poilievre denouncing Anderson for views he says are vile, hateful and racist.

Anderson became known in Canada’s Freedom movement after heavily critiquing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last year when he came to address the European Parliament.
