    In Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, this is the group Storm Alliance, which does not hide its concerns in the face of the massive arrival of migrants at the border who had planned a big demonstration at the canadian border Saturday.

    The group denies being racist and says it does not tolerate hateful messages. Storm Alliance describes its page on Facebook as a non-partisan organization whose”sole purpose is to protect the rights of the people” and “defence of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms”.

    Another protest, this time by a group in favour of the arrival of migrants, has also been organized at the same time.

    “By this manifestation at the border we will demonstrate our support and solidarity with the recent arrival of refugees with a clear message: Welcome to migrants and refugees!” said the organizers of this group in a press release.

    Hundreds of protesters were present around noon, just as police officers who watched in large numbers in the proper conduct of the rallies.

    In Ottawa, the canadian Coalition of concerned citizens organized as a rally on Parliament hill to “expose the hypocrisy and the policies of the Trudeau government on many fronts”. Protesters, pro-immigration, had also planned to go for a ride.
