The owner of Le Drague Cabaret Club in Quebec City filed a complaint with police after a hate message was discovered on social media — a message targeting the local LGBTQ community. The message warned the club’s customers that extremist groups were organizing a “hunt” on Friday night in the neighbourhood where the popular, long-time gay bar is located. The warning message claimed the hunt would target members of the LGBTQ community and “all those who identify publicly with the left.” It also mentions antifascists, non-binary people and people of diverse backgrounds.
