Last week, an 85-page investigative report was published by journalists Caryma Sa’d and Elisa Hategan, which looked into the Trudeau government’s reliance on the Canadian Anti-Hate Network’s  (CAHN) use of open-source intelligence to target a fictitious, meme group known as Diagolon. This report revealed that despite the legacy media citing CAHN “experts” that label Diagolon as a dangerous, far-right militia, senior Canadian intelligence never shared the same concern.

When then Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino told reporters in February of 2022 that a far right organization had leaders on the ground in Ottawa, it was uncovered that the government relied on CAHN sources to back up Mendicino’s assertion.

They’re calling this scandal HateGate.

When you realize that the Trudeau government has partnered with the CAHN, given them public grants, and even appointed CAHN board members to government roles, the HateGate scandal becomes that much more concerning.
