This from "Broadening our Understanding of Anti-Authority Movements in Canada." August 2017. by Barbara Perry, David C. Hofmann and Ryan Scrivens.

https://www.researchgate.net/profile...-in-Canada.pdf

Quote:
Despite obvious similarities between Canadian Sovereign Citizens and FOTL, there is a sharp contrast between the core beliefs and methods between both movements, although not as pronounced as their American counterparts. Netolitsky (2016a) implies that one distinction may be along the left-right political spectrum. He characterizes FOTL as leftist, often engaging in environmental, anti-globalization, and pro-marijuana activism (p. 624). Sovereign Citizens, on the other hand, are more ideologically associated with their similarly named American counterparts (Meads v. Meads, 2012), who embrace right-wing values surrounding issues such as gun ownership, identity politics, antisemitism, and more recently, anti-Muslim worldview. . .

I contend that the line between the two ideologies has become more blurred since the August 2017 publication of the above work. I believe that in an attempt to regain relevance many freemen including their guru, Robert Menard, have courted sovereign citizens and associated alt.right groups by aping their antisemitism, and anti-Muslim worldview.
