Center: Internet Provider Fuels Hate

Download PDF for this date

At least 12 groups are promoting white supremacy and hate against minorities through an Internet provider in British Columbia, according to the Canadian representative of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Toronto.

Freedom Site and Skin-Net are two World Wide Web home pages that provide links to the pages of numerous other groups, including some that are connected to the site of Toronto-based Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel, said Sol Littman of the Wiesenthal Center.

Littman said he informed the owner of the British Columbia-based Internet provider that he is not obliged to provide Internet access to hatemongers.

But the owner, Bernard Klatt of the Fairview Technology Centre, has reportedly shown little concern about the issue.

“I am aware they are there,” he said of the sites. “I probably should go look at them.”
