Police said Monday they know of plans by a white supremacist group to hold a protest this week at the Law Courts Building.
However, a police spokeswoman said there have been no parade permits granted to hold an event there.
The police spokeswoman also said they attend as needed for security.
The Canadian Association for Free Expression sent a notice out to media Monday announcing the protest.
The organization also supports Ernst Zundel, a former Canadian resident and Holocaust denier, who is currently in jail in Germany for hate speech. Tuesday, the trial over two Winnipeg children at the centre of a heated custody dispute resumes.
The children were removed from their parents in 2008 after the girl showed up at her Winnipeg school with neo-Nazi markings.
Court has heard the children’s father and mother are both supporters of the white nationalist, or white supremacist, movement.
The province’s Child and Family Services are arguing the now estranged mother and father of the children are unfit parents, in part due to their beliefs.
