Center Urges Continued Vigilance
TORONTO, June 13 /CNW/ - Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust
Studies (FSWC) today commended the Regina Police Service following its recent
investigation and questioning of known neo-Nazi Terry Tremaine.
"We have been monitoring Mr. Tremaine's activities for many years,
well-prior to his conviction under Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act
in February of this year," said Leo Adler, FSWC Director of National Affairs.
"In January 2006, we alerted the Ontario Provincial Police of his
website, the National-Socialist Party of Canada which was removed from the
Internet shortly thereafter," he added.
The National-Socialist Party of Canada claimed it was dedicated to
"(S)topping and reversing the effects of multiculturalism and (R)esisting the
Jewish/Zionist takeover of the most important social institutions of Canada".
The website also included a myriad of anti-semitic and neo-Nazi propaganda.
Terry Tremaine was listed as the website's contact person.
"There is no doubt that the resurfacing of this website proves
Mr. Tremaine remains devoted to the public dissemination of hate speech in
this country. Coupled with the fact that a fundraising drive has now been
established on another hate website, it becomes clear that he must be closely
monitored by law enforcement officials," said Adler.
