Regina Professor Charged With Internet Hate Crimes

Regina man with neo-Nazi links charged with hate crimes
REGINA -- Police have charged a former university lecturer with wilfully promoting hatred after receiving a complaint about neo-Nazi and racist comments he allegedly posted online.

Police charge that between Feb. 1, 2004, and Nov. 1, 2007, Terrence Cecil Tremaine, 59, posted Internet messages that are hateful against an identifiable group.

Mr. Tremaine's house was raided by Regina police in June 2007. Police seized a computer, CDs, DVDs, software and books -- including a copy of Mein Kampf -- belonging to Mr. Tremaine.

The then-University of Saskatchewan math lecturer has been associated with the so-called National-Socialist Party of Canada, which uses the Nazi swastika and images of Adolf Hitler to promote itself.

A Web site he's been linked with claims it is being "attacked" by the B'nai Brith, the Canadian Jewish Congress and the Simon Weisenthal Centre.

Canadian Jewish Congress Applauds Laying of Hate Crime Charges
Toronto - Canadian Jewish Congress strongly endorses the decision of the Regina Police Service to lay charges under section 319(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada against Terry Tremaine for the content of his website www.nspcanada.org. Complaints against Tremaine were filed by Richard Warman and Canadian Jewish Congress in 2006.

"This website, which identified itself as the home of the National-Socialist Party of Canada, contained the vilest statements directed against members of the Jewish community," said CJC co-President Rabbi Reuven Bulka. "Jews are described in terms that might have been lifted directly from Nazi-era propaganda papers like Der Sturmer. Surely Canada's laws were meant to address this form of contemptible hatred."
