“Tremaine, a former lecturer at the University of Saskatchewan, stands charged with wilful promotion of hatred for allegedly posting hateful messages on an Internet website between Feb. 1, 2004, and Nov. 1, 2007.
“Early in 2007, a Human Rights Tribunal found Tremaine in violation of the Canadian Human Rights Act for his postings to a white supremacist website. The tribunal ordered Tremaine to stop disseminating such messages and pay a $4,000 fine.
“On stormfront.org, news of Tremaine’s charge drew posts from contributors purporting to be from locations around Canada, the United States and Britain, as well as in locations described as ‘Blue-eyed Blondia’ and ‘Soviet Canuckistan.’ ‘If there were no Jews or non-whites in Canada, this would not happen. When is the real problem going to be solved?’ posted one contributor, whose location appeared as Lower Mainland, B.C.”
