The Canadian parliament has called on the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to classify the far-right organization Proud Boys as a terrorist group. A corresponding motion by the opposition New Democratic Party (NDP) was unanimously adopted by MPs on Monday. Proud Boys members had taken part in the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
