Man charged with spreading hate on the Internet
Friday, January 25, 2008
Filed Under: First Nations

Terrence Tremaine, a former university lecturer in Saskatchewan, was charged on Thursday with spreading hate on the Internet.

Tremaine, 59, is part of a white supremacist group. In postings on a site called the Stormfront, he targeted Native people, Jewish people and other ethnic and religious groups.

In response, Tremaine said he used to be married to a part-Native women and has three mixed-race children [Wikipedia]. But the Canadian Human Rights Commission earlier this year fined him $4,000 and ordered him to stop using phone lines to spread hate [Ruling].

David Ahenakew, a Native leader in Saskatchewan, was charged with a hate crime for remarks about Hitler, the Holocaust and Jewish people. He has won a court ruling for a new trial.
