Oliver Bode, 29, was arrested upon arrival in Canada today,
according to an Associated Press report.

He is described as the publisher of a neo-Nazi newspaper in
Germany with a long record of hate-crimes convictions there,
and is being held pending his deportation hearing.

According to Immigration officials, he is considered to be a
public danger.

   "Ernst Zundel, a Toronto-based Nazi sympathizer who denies the 
   Holocaust occurred, acted as counsel for Bode. Zundel said his 
   friend arrived with a suitcase carrying three videos of footage 
   taken from neo-Nazi rallies in Germany.

   Bode spent several days in Toronto last year helping rebuild 
   Zundel's home after it was damaged in a bomb attack." (AP)
