Congratulations to those who spent months pouring through online messages and hours of podcast material to be able to publish this story:
Leagueofthenorth, host of Canada’s largest alt-right neo-Nazi podcast, is Thomas White, who lives 30 minutes outside Thunder Bay. This expose comes after a months-long joint investigation by the Canadian Anti-Hate Network and VICE Canada. https://t.co/2MmxegB3Ga— Evan Balgord (@ebalgord) May 16, 2018
The podcast has been deleted as have the hosts forum accounts with their thousands of posts. You can support the work of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network at https://t.co/vxBsheIGe4.— Evan Balgord (@ebalgord) May 16, 2018
White supremacists whine about being doxxed, complain about private chats being leaked, etc.— Alheli Picazo (@a_picazo) May 16, 2018
This self-described 'Nazi barista' outed himself. https://t.co/qANHct0tTu
A pleasure to work alongside @MartinPatriquin @MackLamoureux @ebalgord to expose this character.
This took months of work that includes going through hours and hours of podcasts, reading thousands upon thousands of words, pulling property records, and speaking to numerous people familiar with the situation on background. It's a weird one.— Mack Lamoureux (@MackLamoureux) May 16, 2018
Until recently, Canada had a self-described “Nazi Barista”. @MackLamoureux, @a_picazo, @ebalgord and I found him. Via @vicecanada and @vicequebec https://t.co/FY9pkEy8ek— Martin Patriquin (@MartinPatriquin) May 16, 2018
OK, if you need me I'm going to be having a beer and toasting to @MartinPatriquin, @a_picazo, and @ebalgord. It was one hell of a pleasure to work with them.— Mack Lamoureux (@MackLamoureux) May 16, 2018
Evan Balgord is the Executive Director of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, an organization I'm proud to have been able to co-found with a lot of very good people. His efforts as well as those of the incredible Alheli Picazo, Martin Patriquin, and Mack Lamoureux in identifying Thomas White as “League of the North" who was one of the co-hosts of the neo-Nazi podcast "This Hour Has 88 Minutes" is a blow to the "white nationalist" movement in Canada and internationally. It also shows the importance of a group like the Canadian Anti-Hate Network in tracking down and identifying these people.
