    * (Not every single one/these candidates is necessarily an antivaxxer, or a fascist, although a majority on this list fall into one or another/those categories. Some may be completely unaware/the politics/their running mates. However, they are all at the very least publicly supported by the antivaxx/conspiracist movement.. TEAM is a good example/this. Its candidates participated in a meeting organized by Victory Canada * (a spinoff from the antivaxx movement’s No New Normal). Maple Ridge First is a developers’ party, but has formally met with the Canadian Freedom Coalition prior to the election. All/the candidates on this list are, at the very least, being supported by Nazis and antivaxxers, and the onus is on them to publicly dissociate themselves from their fellow candidates who believe that Covid is a myth, that Anthony Fauci is a tool/the New World Order and that the (((Rothschilds))) run the world. If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.) (https://nohateoncouncil.cavancouver/)
