Since recording this episode, Tyler Malenfant responded to CANADALAND’s questions via a series of Facebook messages. He says he created the Yellow Vests Canada Facebook group “because Canada needs serious fundamental changes to be made.” In reference to offensive comments on the page, he claims Anti-Racist Canada’s screenshots are “fake” and says: “We remove posts that cross the line when they pop up, some Times [sic] it takes a bit of Time to take it down but when we see it we take it down.”
