Canadian charged with hate crimes


A former Canadian university lecturer was arrested for posting neo-Nazi and racist messages online.

Terrence Cecil Tremaine, a former math professor at the University of Saskatchewan who has been associated with the Nationalist-Socialist Party of Canada, is alleged to have posted Internet comments calling Jews a “parasitic race,” saying “blacks are intellectually inferior to whites” and “Hitler was a lot nicer to the Jews than they deserved,” Canada’s Canwest News Service reported.

Tremaine has been at the center of racist controversy before, having been cited in 2007 for violating the Canadian Human Rights Act. The Canadian Jewish Congress hailed Tremaine’s arrest.

Tremaine has been charged with hate crimes.
