TORONTO, Feb. 5 /CNW/ - Internet hatemonger Bill Nobel has been convicted
of spreading hate speech over the Internet and sentenced to four months in
jail plus three years probation.
"Once again, this proves that the issue isn't one of censorship, but the
realization that acts of hate, terrorism, genocides and other atrocities
always begin with words of hate and that is something Canadian will always
oppose," said Leo Adler, Director of National Affairs, Friends of Simon
Wiesenthal Center For Holocaust Studies.
"We commend Sgt. Sean McGowan and the RCMP British Columbia Hate Squad
for their diligence and hard work on this case," said Avi Benlolo, President &
CEO of Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center For Holocaust Studies.
