The Canadian Nationalist Party was a popular far right political party in Canada that was founded in Calgary, Alberta in 2039. Its popularity reached its peak in the Federal Election of 2047 when it won 159 seats, just 4 seats less than the victorious Socialist Party of Canada. Although the party's founder, Vincent Martin said that the CNP's goal was "to protect the culture and interests of white canadians", many of its highest ranking members openly favoured fascism and state-sponsored racism. The Canadian Nationalist Party attempted a coup d'état in 2050, which was unsuccessful and the party was banned that year.
Principles and Policies
During its existence, the Canadian Nationalist Party advocated many things including:
- Yearly immigration quotas of a limited amount
- Identification of "origin" on every citizen's birth certificate, with the only possible options being "Canadian", "European Canadian" or "non-Canadian"
- Preference towards those of Canadian origin in public sector jobs due to them being supposedly better representatives of Canadian culture
- Criminalization of all gay pride rallies
- Designation of certain neighbourhoods as neighbourhoods in which only those of Canadian origin are allowed to inhabit
- Deportation of all visible minorities who have commited a crime
- Nationalization of all oil & gas reserves
- Nationalization of all energy corporations
- Less power towards labour unions
- Termination of all diplomatic relations with the State of Israel
- Increase of military expenditure to 5% of the Canada's GDP
The Canadian Nationalist Party's flag consisted of a red triangle with three lines pointing at the center from each vertex, and a magnifying glass in the middle.
The party's flag was said to represent its vision for Canada. The three lines represent the CNP's three main principles: Nationalism, secularism and republicanism. The magnifying glass was said to represent the vision it has that its goals will be achieved. The symbol is iconic in Canada today and represents how fragile democracy was and how close Canada was to being ruled by a far right ultranationalist organization. Some even say it is just as infamous as the swastika.
