PossibiIities include using the punitive sections of the Income Tax Act in response to hate mongers who don't accurately report the income they derive from the sale of hate propaganda. There is also potential legal recourse available at comrnon law to conference facility owners, be it hotels or convention centres, who unwittingly rent out space to hate groups for group meetings or public gatherings. Despite recourse to these alternative legal remedies, the primary remedies in Ontario for combating hate activity have been described. To date, the effectiveness of these provisions have, for the most part, not been curtailed by the courts. Rather, it has been the failure of the authorities to seize the opportunity provided by existing legislation, particularly that aimed at hate propaganda, which has limited the deterrence value of such provisions. Once again, as in other facets of human activity the law is not a complete solution but is certainly part of the answer.
