Meanwhile, Canada has declared the Proud Boys a terrorist organization
Another leader of the Proud Boys has been charged in connection with the Capitol riots in Washington, DC, while federal authorities continue to investigate its links to the deadly attack.
Ethan Nordin, who calls himself the “bailiff” of the Seattle chapter of the Proud Boys, was charged with obstruction of Congress, aiding and abetting a crime, and trespassing into restricted territory as part of a crowd that stormed the Capitol building.
Nordin, also known as Rufio Panman, was one of several members of the organization facing charges.
Meanwhile, the Canadian government has placed the Proud Boys on a list of terrorist organizations, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair announced.
“Canada will not tolerate acts of violence that have ideological, religious, or political overtones,” Blair said.
Canada became the first country to make such a decision against the Proud Boys.
