Tseshaht First Nation in Port Alberni says a speaker who has called truth and reconciliation a “charade” and “witch hunt” is not welcome in their territory, which includes the entire Alberni Valley.

Gaw has been on a tour of Vancouver Island with stops in Victoria, Cobble Hill, Black Creek, Comox and Nanoose Bay, according to Action4Canada’s website.

She was set to speak at Char’s Landing Hall and Hostel in Port Alberni, but owner ­Charlene Patterson cancelled the event in response to “bullying, threatening and hateful social media posts” both by and against Action4Canada, a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page said.

Action4Canada calls itself a grassroots movement dedicated to protecting Canada’s heritage “founded on Judeo-Christian ­biblical principles.” It lists issues it focuses on ranging from abortion to critical race theory, 15-minute cities, the World Economic Forum, euthanasia and “political LGBTQ activists.”
