Soldiers of Odin start controversial foot patrols in Vancouver

Anti-racists link them to white supremacists. ‘We are a neighbourhood watch organization with no racist agenda,’ counters leader. A citizen patrol group accused of vigilantism and ties to racists held a street patrol in downtown Vancouver on Sunday night. A recently formed B.C. chapter of Soldiers of Odin — an international network co-founded late last year by a Finnish white supremacist convicted of racially motivated assaults — held a “day of action” in the Okanagan and Vancouver. According to videos posted to Soldiers of Odin B.C.’s 1,000-member Facebook page, the patrol involved less than a dozen members in black jackets adorned with the initials “S.O.O.” and the distinctive Norse logo. “We got to watch every crevice,” a narrator of one video, which had been viewed nearly 1,500 times by publication time, said. “I never seen so many needles in my life going down that f—ing alley. “Here we are in downtown Vancouver … the boys are doing their thing.”
