Facebook is banning far-right political commentator Faith Goldy, white nationalist crusader Kevin Goudreau and various extremist groups, the social media company said... The company said it has long-standing policies on extremist content and organized hate groups and is barring the individuals and organizations under its "dangerous individuals and organizations" community standards policy. "Individuals and organizations who spread hate, attack, or call for the exclusion of others on the basis of who they are have no place on Facebook. That's why we have a policy on dangerous individuals and organizations, which states that we do not allow those who are engaged in offline 'organized hate' to have a presence on Facebook," [said] Facebook. "The individuals and organizations we have banned today violate this policy, and they will no longer be allowed a presence on our services. Our work against organized hate is ongoing and we will continue to review individuals, pages, groups and content against our community standards." ... The company said it also intends to remove content affiliated with those banned.. CBC News contacted Twitter to ask if Goldy would be banned... but received a..."no comment" in reply... Minister of Democratic Institutions Karina Gould said..."We are pleased that Facebook has made this decision and would hope that other platforms would look to Facebook's actions."...
