WINNIPEG — Ten minutes after a planned protest by a white supremacist group outside the Law Courts Building this morning, media and opponents far outnumbered the three supremacists who showed up.
The supremacists are part of the Canadian Association for Free Expression, or CAFE. But just a handful of its supporters stood on the sidewalk on York Avenue prior to the trial over two Winnipeg children at the centre of a heated custody dispute.
CAFE supporter Gerry Neal said, "I support freedom of speech in Canada, I object to Child and Family Services taking away any children except in extreme cases of abuse."
The children were removed from their parents in 2008 after the girl showed up at her school with neo-Nazi markings on her body.
The custody trial resumes this morning.
