Racist Held in Contempt

Vancouver (JTA) -- A Canadian court has found a racist telephone line to be in contempt of court for continuing to spread its hate message after being told to shut down.

The hate line, Canadian Liberty Net, which was based in Vancouver, had moved its operations to Bellingham, Washington, and continued from there after being ordered to shut down in March.

Justice Max Teitelbaum ruled here last Friday that Canadian Liberty Net violated a court injunction when it continued to operate from the United States.

The line, which shares a mailbox with a Vancouver based neo-Nazi Skinhead group called ARM skins, changed its name to Canadian Liberty Net in Exile and moved across the border after the March court order to cease operations pending a full hearing before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.

The automated telephone service featured such speakers as convicted hate propagandist Ernst Zundel and the California-based leader of the White Aryan Nations [sic], Tom Metzger, calling the Holocaust a hoax, saying that there is a "kosher" food tax and that non-whites are importing crime into Canada."
