Former U of S Professor Pleads 'Not Guilty' To Spreading Hate On The Internet
former University of Saskatchewan
"A former University of Saskatchewan lecturer says he's not guilty of promoting hatred against Jews, and wants to take his case before a jury. Tremaine was charged last month for allegedly violating a section of the Criminal Code that bars public incitement of hatred against any identifiable group. A conviction carries a penalty of up to two years in jail. Tremaine was dismissed from his position as a part-time lecturer at the University of Saskatchewan in 2005, after the school became aware of postings he had made on a white supremacist Web site.
After his dismissal, Tremaine, known online as mathdoktor99 and JCMateri, attributed his anti-Jewish comments to mental health issues and delusional thinking, but subsequently retracted that explanation and stood by his earlier Internet postings.
Last year, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled that Tremaine had violated the Canadian Human Rights Act by making racist postings on the Internet. The tribunal fined Tremaine $4,000 and ordered him to stop making such postings.
The new postings are alleged to have been made between Feb. 1, 2004 and Nov. 1, 2007.
Tremaine made his first appearance on the new charge at Regina Provincial Court on Monday morning."

I wonder if the people who are sending money to Ezra Levant, to 'protect' his rights to free speech will also send money to Tremaine? (I'm just asking!)
