28-year-old Travis Patron of Redvers, the leader of the right-wing Nationalist Party of Canada, and a candidate in Souris-Moose Mountain in the recent federal election, has been charged with assaulting two women in Regina.
Patron appeared in court Tuesday, November 12 on charges of assault causing bodily harm, aggravated assault and breach of probation
Patron was charged after two women were allegedly assaulted after declining a ride home from Patron in Regina on Saturday, November 2.
Police were dispatched at around 2:30 a.m. to the 1900 block of Victoria Avenue after receiving a report of an assault.
Police say two women, aged 33 and 43, had just been assaulted by Patron.
They both had visible injuries from the incident and were taken to the hospital for treatment.
The women and Patron had allegedly been in conversation earlier in the evening.
According to police, Patron offered them rides home, and when they declined, the alleged assault occurred.
Shortly after the alleged assault, at 3:13 am on the night of the incident, the Regina Police Service was able to spot the suspect, walking on Victoria Avenue, but he refused to be interviewed.
Upon further investigation, police were able to determine his identity and arranged for him to be interviewed.
As a result of that interview Patron has been charged with assault causing bodily harm, aggravated assault and breach of probation.
He was arrested and charged Saturday, November 9 and made his first court appearance on Tuesday, November 12 where he was released and placed on court-ordered conditions.
The breach of probation charge stems from a probation order made by a judge of the Province of Quebec on March 7 of this year.
One of the conditions of the probation order was for Patron to “keep the peace and be of good behavior.”
Patron will be back in court November 25 to face the latest charges.
Patron came last in the federal election in Souris-Moose Mountain, with only 166 votes.
Violent incidents involving Canadian Nationalist Party
Followers of Patron’s party have been involved in violent incidents this year.
Individuals wearing “Canadian Nationalist Party” hats and t-shirts were involved in two violent incidents in Ontario this year.
In one incident, individuals wearing “Canadian Nationalist Party” hats and t-shirts were involved in a brawl in the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto during a Pride event in June.
Videos show the individuals in Canadian Nationalist Party gear attacking individuals in the mall.
Supporters of the party were also involved in violent altercations at the pride parade in Hamilton on June 22.
Party has attracted controversy
The Canadian Nationalist Party has attracted a lot of controversy over some of its stands.
On its website, the group lists as one of its top priorities a “demographic policy” that is designed to “maintain the demographic status” of Canada’s “European-descended majority.”
Earlier this year, the RCMP launched a hate crime probe following accusations of anti-Semitism after the group released a video of Patron claiming a “parasitic tribe” controls the media and central bank in Canada.
In language reminiscent of Nazi attacks on the Jewish people, Patron says in the video “Everywhere these people go, they infiltrate the media, they hijack the central bank, and they infect the body politic like a parasite . . . And what we need to do, perhaps more than anything, is remove these people, once and for all, from our country.” Tweet
