The City Of Regina Is Planning To March Against Racism On Thursday 

Rabbi Jeremy Parnes said he sees no problem with people expressing their opinions about Israel or Judaism, as long as it does not cross the lines of hate speech.

Five days after a woman was killed during an anti-racism demonstration in Charlottesville, Va., the Saskatchewan Coalition Against Racism will hold what it calls a teach-in and vigil against white nationalist violence in Regina on Thursday evening.

The rise of the alt-right political movement in North America is sad but not surprising, according to a rabbi and an anti-racism activist.

“I was very saddened, disappointed and distressed to see this kind of activity taking place,” said Rabbi Jeremy Parnes of the Beth Jacob Synagogue.

The rally will take place at the Peace Fountain, located at City Hall, and begins at 7 p.m. CST.
