People's Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier posed for a photo with members of an organization described as a hate group in Calgary Sunday.
The photo, which was taken at an event where Bernier announced new candidates for his party, shows the PPC leader in a cowboy hat posing with men who are wearing vests with patches depicting the emblem of Northern Guard.
One of the men flashes a hand gesture that the American Anti-Defamation League says has been used by white supremacists, ironically or sincerely, to symbolize white power.
The symbol was infamously flashed by Brenton Tarrant during a mid-March court appearance. Tarrant is accused of killing 51 people in a gun attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15.
