Canadian Leader Travis Patron CNP Is under fire again for wanting to stand up for Canadian rights and freedoms. CBC Catharine Tunney has attacked a good man’s reputation all so the liberals can try and gain a few more seats. This is a typical pick on the little guy beacuse Justin cant handle the losing to Andrew Scheer. When talking to Mr Patron He claims that he has not been arrested and that they are working with the RCMP but at this time the RCMP are not pressing charges or investigating these false claims.
I have asked Travis Patron Questions and this is his response.
Apparently our organization is subject to two different RCMP investigations. I cannot comment on the communications we have had with the RCMP but I can say that there appears to be no grounds for charges to be lain and we maintain our innocence.
The complainant is misinterpreting my words. They are also misinterpreting my intention. This is not a message of hate, but rather a message of hope.
In order for language to be criminally liable it must be made against an identifiable group. Speech, such as that shown in the video mentioned, uses parables/parody and therefore it is not made against an identifiable group. The complaint has not met the threshold necessary for charges to be lain. Doing otherwise would bring the administration of justice into disrepute.
There are no grounds for a legal action of so-called “hate propaganda”. There are also no grounds for deeming our ongoing application with Elections Canada ineligible due to the claims of the complainant.
I would recommend that the complainant familiarize themselves with the story about ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’, where the boy made numerous false accusations and thereby violated the trust of the community before a real wolf appeared on the scene. When the real threat presented itself, the community was no longer willing to listen and the boy met his demise.Travis Patron
Leader of the Canadian Nationalist Party
RCMP going after Canadian Nationalist Party for intellectual property violation
Mounties also investigating upstart political party for potential hate crime

Last week, the RCMP launched a hate crime investigation into the leader of the Canadian Nationalist Party — now they’re going after the budding political party for violating intellectual property.
The Canadian Nationalist Party, which promotes anti-immigrant and anti-LGBTQ views — and calls for the removal of “globalists” from the country — is in the final stages of applying to be able to collect tax-deductible political donations and run a slate of candidates in the October federal election.
To garner cash, the party has set up an online store selling Canadian Nationalist Party hats and shirts.
The big-ticket item was an RCMP centennial copper coin that the party was trying to sell for $625.
The party says the coin was released to commemorate the 1974 RCMP Musical Ride, the force’s iconic touring equine show.
“Feels good in the hand and in the name of justice,” notes the Canadian Nationalist Party page.
The RCMP has a different interpretation of justice in this case.
“This is a clear violation of RCMP intellectual property rights. No person or organization may use our protected marks without our permission,” said spokesperson Sgt. Marie Damian.
“This is the first we have heard of this infringement. We will be addressing it shortly.”
By Thursday afternoon the coin was no longer for sale on Canadian Nationalist Party’s site.
The force is still investigating its validity.
The Canadian Nationalist Party did not respond to a CBC News request for comment about the coin.
Hate speech probe launched
The intellectual property case comes as Mounties in Saskatchewan probe a video posted to the Canadian Nationalist Party website and on its Facebook and YouTube pages.
It shows the leader of the group, Travis Patron, denouncing what he describes as “the parasitic tribe” or “black sheep” who he claims control the media and the central bank in Canada.
“What we need to do, perhaps more than anything, is remove these people once and for all from our country,” says Patron to the camera.

The RCMP said they are consulting hate crime specialists to determine whether Patron’s comments in the video contravene criminal laws against advocating genocide or hatred against an identifiable group.
Patron told CBC News his statements are directed at “globalists” and that his members have not violated hate speech laws.
Elections Canada has given the Canadian Nationalist Party until July 15 to provide the 250 signed declarations from members who are eligible voters that it needs to officially register as a federal political party.
Damian said the RCMP intervenes on a “regular” basis on trademark infringements.
Last fall, it asked the Founders Brewing Co., based in Grand Rapids, Mich., to stop using a picture of a Mountie to sell its Canadian Breakfast Stout.
“While we understand why the brewery chose to use the iconic Mountie in red serge on their ‘Canadian’ beer, the RCMP’s image, crest and name are protected under the Trademarks Act,” a spokesperson told the Windsor Star at the time.
“The RCMP Act also prohibits the unauthorized use of the RCMP name, representations of its members and marks, badges or insignia.”
