We have seen the type of tragic results that this kind of extremism can bring to Canada.
Atomwaffen Division, the Base, and the Russian Imperial Movement were the other "ideologically motivated violent extremist groups" Canada added to its list of terrorist entities on Wednesday.
These organizations have now been placed alongside others considered to be dangerous, like Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Taliban and others.
In total, 13 organizations were newly declared as an official threat, including affiliates of ISIS and Al Qaeda.
According to the federal government’s official statement, the move will mandate “severe penalties for people and organizations that deal with property or finances of a listed entity.”
Canada’s politicians, including NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, have been calling on the Liberal government to take action on the Proud Boys since their alleged involvement in the U.S. riots last month.
"Violent acts of terrorism have no place in Canadian society or abroad. Today's additions to the Criminal Code list of terrorist entities are an important step in our effort to combat violent extremism in all forms," Blair added.

The Liberal leader looks almost unrecognizable in one photo in particular, where he's wearing a white tank top and baggy jeans. It's pretty different from his smart prime minister suits!
Sharing the images, he wrote, "I'm thinking of two moms in particular today - my own, who has taught me so much and shown me what it means to be strong, and Sophie, who inspires me every day and fills our family with unconditional love."
Sophie Gregoire Trudeau also paid tribute to her mom on Mother's Day, writing, "To my mom Estelle, you are my guiding star."
Trudeau is clapping back against Doug Ford's targeted ads about tightening border restrictions to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
In a press conference on Friday, the prime minister stated that these "personal attacks" are not what Ontarians need right now. Instead, Trudeau states he will continue to work with Ford to come to a conclusion about border restrictions if Ford will get back to him.
"If the Ontario government wants to do more to restrict the volume of people coming into Ontario, we are more than happy to work with them on it," Trudeau stated.
"But it's been a week since we've received that request directly from the premier that they haven't followed up on except with personal attacks, which doesn't make sense and quite frankly won't help Ontarians."
Earlier this week, the Ontario PC Party released an ad campaign, which claimed that Trudeau's lack of border control could lead to the fourth wave of COVID-19.
Ford keeps reaching out to Trudeau
While Trudeau claims he has yet to hear back personally from Ford, the targeted ad does follow multiple letters and comments from the premier.
Back in April, both Ford and Quebec's premier François Legault sent a joint letter to Trudeau, stating that the number of international flights landing in Canada should be reduced.
After this, Ford released his own statement on May 4 asking to ban all non-essential travel and close the "quarantine loophole at land border crossings."
Ford has also used his Twitter account in an attempt to get the prime minister's attention. "In the last two weeks, we have sent the federal government 3 urgent letters requesting immediate action on the borders," he claims.
