The Heritage Front's Aryan fest to mark Canada Day in Kingston this past weekend ended up turning into a backyard barbecue.
Front head Wolfgang Droege says he didn't even know the skinhead fete was being planned until someone read him a newspaper article about it Friday morning. "I was really surprised."
What gives? Police say there's a power struggle in the Front.
"From what I hear, that's the way things are shaking down," says staff sergeant Brian Cookman of Kingston police.
The Front has been dormant for years, but police say a recent Front arrival from Sudbury has been busy recruiting and organizing meetings in Kingston. This past weekend's ill-fated concert was only his latest foray. If it was an attempt by the group to revive its fortunes, Bernie Farber of the Canadian Jewish Congress says it failed miserably.
