Ottawa City Councillor Condemns Diagolon Event Over Weekend


A community group and an Ottawa city councillor are condemning the far-right group Diagolon after it organized an event in Ottawa last weekend.

The anti-fascist group Community Solidarity Ottawa describes Diagolon as a neo-Nazi and white supremacist group.

Councillor Clarke Kelly says the group “promotes hateful and racist rhetoric.”

Ottawa police said in a statement to social media site X on Saturday that they were “aware” of the tour and had received “reports” from residents about the event.

A Diagolon website reported that the July 6 tour of the ‘Road Rage Terror Tour’ was a ‘success’, although it is unclear how many people attended the event.
