The online student newspaper of the University of New Brunswick’s Saint John campus has been left in a state of upset after its editor-in-chief published an op-ed defending her decision to run an unedited opinion piece from the leader of a white supremacist group.
Anna De Luca, whose last name is no longer listed on The Baron’s site, has been the publication’s editor-in-chief since the start of the month, and on January 25 published two pieces — a Q&A she conducted with Michael Thurlow, the leader of the National Socialist Canadian Labour Revival Party, and a 2000-word anti-Semitic and anti-Indigenous “commentary” penned by Thurlow.
