"Where are the principled supporters of free speech now? Let’s see, CHRC used by Jewish groups to prosecute people for their opinions for years and no-one cares. Then a Muslim group does the same thing, and there is a national uproar and outcry, from the National Post to Wreck Smurfy. The inescapable conclusion is that Canadian reporters are deeply concerned with and committed to freedom of speech –when it is safe, and the ‘offended’ party is not a major Zionofascist Jewish group."

[from above link]

The reality, as I understand it Ms. Kozak, is that the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada, like its twin, the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), and their adjunct arm the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), are not what they ostensibly appear to be in terms of the public’s general understanding and that when the truth is finally revealed and their masks eventually removed, all these entities will be shown to be long-standing, front organizations created to function as propaganda tools for those who ascribe to what is historically known as Political Zionism, an ideology based upon the Judaic Talmud and manifesting in the policies of the government of the state of Israel. For the historical evidence of this please see the article B’nai Brith: Beating the anti-Semitic Drum http://www.radicalpress.com/?p=477 This Zionist ideology, when juxtaposed with all the corroborating evidence which exists, shows itself to be a political/religious program designed to instill and promote a racist-based, segregated, supremacist, discriminatory, apartheid system of governance; one that has been in existence since the inception of the Jewish state of Israel back in 1948 and is currently still being enforced by the present state and operating not only within its own undefined boundaries but also within foreign (Palestinian) territory illegally occupied by Israeli military forces.

While on first notice this may appear to be an extreme assertion, the historical evidence exists (although hidden from the general public for the better part of the last century by a complicit, pro-Zionist-controlled “western” media cartel), to fully corroborate the premise upon which I make these apparently radical and seemingly startling statements.

What I am proposing to you and your Commission members and to the Canadian public (who will also be alerted to this critical issue) is the contention that, based upon my years of research, the actual and true agenda of Harry Abrams and his partner in this complaint, the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada is, in fact, one of seditious, purposeful design meant to undermine not only the sovereignty of the legally elected Canadian government, but simultaneously, to assist, aid and abet a much larger and more sinister agenda – that of attempting to subvert, suppress and nullify the legitimate rights of all Canadian citizens with respect to their most cherished and intrinsic values. Here I refer to a citizen’s inalienable right to freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom of thought and freedom of speech, all of which are currently being attacked in earnest by extremist, ideologically driven organizations such as the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada and the Canadian Jewish Congress, both of whom ascribe to, and are in fact undeniably and inextricably based upon the racist, unconstitutional, discriminatory, exclusionary, and supremacist philosophy known as Political Zionism.

As already stated I have investigated this phenomenon in earnest for a number of years, both as a writer and researcher of history and as a publisher of a legitimate, established new service (The Radical Press) which has been operating in Canada since June of 1998. During the course of the last decade and following the dictates of my business motto “Digging to the root of the issues” I have unearthed more than a sufficient amount of authentic evidence which indicates that organizations such as the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith and the Canadian Jewish Congress consistently use their financial position, media monopoly and political lobbying power to negatively influence Canadian jurisprudence in order that cumulative legislation over the years inevitably tends to disproportionately favour one extremely small minority group in Canada (less than 2% of all Canadians) and that minority happens to be Canada’s Jewish population, and in particular the sub-element of Zionists embedded within the greater Jewish community, who believe in and promote the Zionist ideology as subscribed to by the state of Israel. In other words, Ms. Kozak, Canadian jurisprudence, and subsequently Canada’s freedom, has been incrementally high-jacked by what amounts to be a percentage of citizens who comprise less than 1% of Canada’s total population.

As such Harry Abrams’ and the League of Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada’s spurious contention that I and my website, http://www.radicalpress.com are contriving to “promote ongoing hatred affecting persons identifiable as Jews and/or as citizens of Israel” is premised not only upon the false accusation that the articles contained on the website, written either by myself or other writers, are designed to somehow denigrate all Jews but also with the premeditated intention of diverting and misdirecting the focus of the public away from the content of the information (the message) onto a side diversion, that of “promoting hatred”, (the messenger) so as to prevent the reading population from gaining access to and assimilating the data and possibly using it to form their own conclusions as to whether or not the information fits into the overall picture of what is really happening in Israel and Palestine and, concurrently, here in Canada. Along with these two objectives I would hasten to add what I conceive to be a further and more imminent danger for all for Canadians, that of surreptitiously creating biased, deceiving and unconstitutional legislation which, over time, will stifle and silence, by fear-motivated threat of litigation, fines and imprisonment, any and all debate related to the ideology and practice of Zionism, either by those who promote such policies in Israel (the majority of Jewish citizens) or those front organizations within Canada such as the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith and the Canadian Jewish Congress whose primary modus operandi is to support the objectives of the Jewish state.

Bearing such assertions in mind, for Harry Abrams and the League of Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada to attempt a perpetuation of this old and worn-out canard of “hatred” toward Jews, regardless of its past efficacy in silencing and suppressing debate on issues related to either the policies of the state of Israel toward the Palestinian people or to the stranglehold over western mainstream media and international finance and so on, flies in the face of insurmountable and indisputable evidence to the contrary that appears daily on the internet and is even now, of necessity, trickling down into the Zionist-run media monopoly that heavily influences both Americans and Canadians alike. As a result we find in some of the most recent examples the cases of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter who is being incessantly attacked and vilified around the world by Zionist ideologues for his book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, which focuses in on the very issues which I am outlining here, which are: the parallel structure and nature of the former apartheid state of South Africa with that of the current state of Israel and its racist, exclusionary treatment of the Palestinian people both within its own undetermined national boundaries and in the surrounding Palestinian territories which it illegally has occupied for decades. The other outstanding instance (more so in the US media) is the controversial case of the two respected Jewish researchers in the USA, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt and their book, The Israeli Lobby. Again, the attack upon them is relentlessly rude and only the epithets differ because they themselves are both ethnic Jews. Numerous other examples abound.

Synonymous with current criticism of Israel and the Zionist Jews by such notable Gentile internet authors as John Kaminski, Curt Maynard, Wendy Campbell, Texe Marrs, Alex James, Paul Fromm, Michael A. Hoffman II, James Petras, Edgar J. Steele, Mark Glenn and others are the writings and speeches of some of the most fervent and impassioned critics of the Zionist Israeli state who are themselves ethnic Jews. Canadian internet writer Dr. Henry Makow http://www.henrymakow.com/ is a good example of what I am referring to. Due to the fact that these harsh critics of Zionist Israeli policies are bone fide Jews, the fanatical element itself, i.e. the Zionists, cannot with any credibility, accuse them of promoting “hatred” toward Jews. It therefore creates a conundrum for the Zionist Jews as well as for the Christian Zionist elements within our own western society who have been deceived by this false Messiah (Zionism) and fallen into the trap of believing that the state of Israel, because of its Biblical ramifications, is above and beyond criticism and/or fault. As a result, and true to the fallacious and indefensibly dogmatic tenets upon which the Zionist ideology is constructed, their only method of retaliating against their own kind is to resort to the most sordid practice of heaping as much calumny, slander, libel, verbal abuse and willful, malicious hatred that they can muster onto those ethnic Jews who they deem traitorous to the Zionist Israeli government. Thus, the brave and courageous Jews who have broken away from this pack of perfidious, self-chosen zealots and have displayed the audacity to criticize the Zionist agenda now are forced to bear the brunt of what is likely some of the most scathing, vitriolic, hate-related messaging on the net today. For anyone who doubts the veracity of the above statement they need only go to the following website http://www.masada2000.org/list-A.html and read for themselves the long list created by these fanatical proponents of Zionism. Blatant examples such as this beg the question as to why the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada are not raising a public outcry and pushing to have this site shut down for promoting “hatred” toward Jews?

These introductory comments basically cover what I wish to say at this point regarding Political Zionism and its direct connection with Harry Abrams and the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada. Tribunal members and readers in general who are interested in finding out more about this race-based ideology can study the phenomenon in greater detail by reading online the classic reference book on the origins and practices of Political Zionism by the late Douglas Reed, former British foreign correspondent for the London Times who wrote The Controversy of Zion http://www.radicalpress.com/?page_id=34 back in 1956 after spending 25 years researching the subject. For a more detailed account of my own views on this subject I suggest the article, Epistle to Paul, http://www.radicalpress.com/?p=90 . There will also be other urls to articles and books on this topic which I will be posting in the bibliography at the end of this response. Simply googling the term “Zionism” or “Political Zionism” will give enquirers ample information. I would now like to return to the charges that Harry Abrams and the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada have brought to your Commission and focus attention on the specifics of the alleged misdeeds.

Bill, I've read about Arthur Topham's case several months ago and then kind of forgot about it. Just recently rediscovered him when doing some searching. I haven't been following his case so I can't tell you about its current status.

Doug Christie did excellent work for old chief Ahenakew and got him a 'not guilty' just the other day. It'd be great news if Arthur Topham could get a win too. He deserves it. Harry Abrams needs to be slapped down hard and ordered to pay all court costs.

Arthur Topham charged with a 'hate crime'. I guess it's under the criminal code S319. We'll see if TRUTH is a defence.

Another Dissident Victim: Arthur Topham Charged With "Hate" for Internet Postings

Make no mistake about it: It's dangerous to be a strong critic of Israel in Canada. The long arm of political Zionism reaches deep within governments in Canada. A once free nation was saddled with the "hate law", Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code, after more than 30 years of lobbying by the Canadian Jewish Congress.

The process works this way, as lawyer Doug Christie has frequently explained: demonize, ostracize, then criminalize. The victim is the subject of a series of one-sided press articles. Friends and potential allies shy away, thinking "I don't want my name associated with things like that. I can't afford publicity like what he's getting." Now, vilified and isolated, the friendless victim is marched off to court for his final destruction. Notice in the National Post and Sun Media articles below, Mr. Topham is never interviewed nor is a spokesman say, for a free speech organization like CAFE.

Arthur Topham has been a strong critic of Zionism for almost 15 years, through radicalpress, which was first a newspaper and, of latter years, a website and blog.

After a six month RCMP "Hate squad" (thought crimes) investigation and while labouring under an Internet gag order, Arthur Topham has been charged under Canada's notorious "hate" law. In an e-mail sent out earlier this week, Mr. Topham indicated that he expects to be arrested. He will appear in court on November 8 to seek bail. He fears the Crown will seek a severe gag order.

Until a few weeks ago, he wasn't even allowed to send out e-mail and, of course, his computers had been seized by the police. What a country! When you watch the pukesome The Charter: Let's Discuss It (http://charterproject.ca) ads on television, with their earnestly politically correct types breathlessly enthusing how Trudeau's 30-year old document ensures our rights, scream back, "What About Arthur Topham?" The Charter was a legal coup d'etat. It stripped us of individual rights and conferred group rights. If you're not a member of a privilged group, you're out of luck. The well meaning fools think they enjoy freedom of speech and other rights. They haven't read the weasel clause which says you have these rights unless Parliament or a provincial legislature decides to restrict them for some good reason, of course,or, as the Charter expresses it, "a reasonable limit in a free and democratic society." "Democratic" cancels free, because if an elected or even appointed body approves the restriction, it's "democratic.|

Mr. Topham's tormenters, the complainants, are Harry Abrams, a longtime B'nai Brith operative in Victoria, and serial complainant Richard Warman, who somehow found time while doing whatever he does for the Department of National Defence, to investigate Mr. Topham and file yet another complaint. According to the National Post (November 6, 2012): "Mr. Warman’s complaint said both the Biological Jew and the Protocols were banned from import into Canada as hate propaganda. 'When you’ve got that kind of just rabid attack against the Jewish community I think it’s incumbent on people to stand up in society,' said Mr. Warman, who regularly files complaints about racist websites."

Notice, it's really about silencing views, racist or anti-Zionist, Warman doesn't like. Warman wants people to stand up. Fair enough. Why not write a critique pointing out exactly where The Biolgical Jew or the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion are wrong. That's how debate should occur in a free society. Also being banned as "hate propaganda" by the Customs Canada censors doens't imply the book was ever given a hearing. There was never a trial. Some bureaucrat made a ruling.

If you want to help Arthur Topham, here are his instructions: "I would also ask of you that you hang on to the website url to the following blog which contains my PayPal account. I will most likely need this to help in soliciting for donations to pay legal costs. The url is http://www.quesnelcariboosentinel.com and the PayPal button is on the top right hand corner of the home page.

B.C. man charged with promoting hatred against Jews on website

Stewart Bell | Nov 6, 2012

RadialPress.comA screengrab from The Radial Press website. Owner Arthur Topham, Quesnel, B.C., has been charged with willfully promoting hatred against Jews.

The publisher of a British Columbia website that has drawn repeated complaints over its portrayals of Jews has been charged with promoting hatred following a six-month police investigation, officials said Tuesday.

Arthur Topham, 65, was charged with a single count of willfully promoting hatred against “people of the Jewish religion or ethnic group” as well as improper storage of firearms found in his house near Quesnel, B.C.

“The branch has approved charges against him,” said Neil MacKenzie of the B.C. Criminal Justice Branch. He said the province’s assistant deputy attorney general had sign off on the hate crimes charge.

Mr. Topham was to make a court appearance Thursday.

“We’re glad that the government and the police have taken our concerns seriously and proceeded,” said Anita Bromberg of B’nai Brith Canada, which had asked police to investigate the website last May.

Anti-Semitism growing threat on campuses: group

Mr. Topham is a miner and is listed as secretary of the Cariboo Mining Association. He also publishes Radical Press, a website that posts materials with conspiracy theory themes such as the “Biological Jew” and the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.”

The Biological Jew depicts Jews as parasites that suck the blood from their “host” societies while the Protocols is a fraudulent book that purports to describe a conspiracy for worldwide Jewish domination.

In May, Harry Abrams, a B’nai Brith volunteer in Victoria, B.C., and Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman both complained to police about the website. Mr. Warman’s complaint said both the Biological Jew and the Protocols were banned from import into Canada as hate propaganda.

“When you’ve got that kind of just rabid attack against the Jewish community I think it’s incumbent on people to stand up in society,” said Mr. Warman, who regularly files complaints about racist websites.

It seems that a lesson needs to be learned and the criminal system might be the best way to do it

Police arrested Mr. Topham and questioned him on May 16. According to a transcript of his police interview that was posted online, he asked the investigating officer, Det. Const. Terry Wilson of the B.C. Hate Crime Team, whether he had been trained in Tel Aviv or whether Mossad had come to Canada to train him.

He lectured the officer about how Jews “control what you’re doing” and said they had “created the unit you’re working for.” He asked the officer if he was a Christian and scolded him for what he was doing.

“These guys have spent the last 2,000 years trying to destroy our religion, and you like a Judas are out here like a, like one of their dogs chasing down people who are trying to defend the Christian religion,” he said. “You ought to be ashamed of yourself.”

Doug Christie, Mr. Topham’s defence lawyer, confirmed in an email his client had been formally charged. Asked if he wanted to comment, Mr. Christie responded: “Opposition to Zionism should not be illegal.”

But Ms. Bromberg said the website went well beyond that. “This isn’t a free speech issue about the politics behind Israel. It is borrowing on age-old canards that raise our concerns that this is designed to spread hate,” she said. “Our concerns were valid, they were carefully considered by the police and obviously, because these were hate crimes charges, by the attorney-general.”

Mr. Topham announced on his website he had been charged. He portrayed himself as a defender of free speech and asked for donations. “Judging from the wording of this indictment it looks like it’s going to be a battle between the Christians and the Jews,” he wrote.

Complaints about Radical Press go back to 2007, when B’nai Brith took the website to the Canadian Human Rights Commission. But the case stalled due to uncertainty over the law. Police assumed sole responsibility for investigating hate crimes complaints about websites after the Conservatives voted in June to repeal a law that had previously allowed the rights commission to deal with such matters.

B.C. blogger charged with hate crime for promoting hatred against Jews

Tyler Orton, QMI Agency

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

VANCOUVER — A British Columbia man has been charged with a hate crime following years of complaints to human rights officials for his website, which refers to those of Jewish faith as snakes and Zionists.

Arthur Topham, a 65-year-old miner from Quesnel, was charged Monday with promoting hatred against an identifiable group and a firearms-related offence following a six-month criminal investigation into the content on his website, Radical Press, Crown officials said.
“It’s relatively uncommon to have charges sworn under this section (of the Criminal Code) in British Columbia,” Crown spokesman Neil MacKenzie said.

Complaints against Radical Press first surfaced in 2007 when Harry Abrams of Victoria, B.C., and Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman filed a grievance against Topham with the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

Abrams said the complaint ended up getting bogged down in uncertainty over the law, but police began investigating the case last spring.

“There’s a place for opinion and a place for discourse. When you have hate propaganda, it’s generally a one-sided thing that cannot be answered to,” said Abrams, a volunteer with the Jewish advocacy group B’nai B’rith Canada.

Abrams said he’s satisfied the blogger has been charged.

Topham’s lawyer Doug Christie told QMI Agency Canada’s hate-speech laws are “instruments of oppression” and there’s no evidence to support the idea that anything someone says promotes violence.

“Nobody has to look up Mr. Topham’s website unless they want to go out of their way to be offended,” he said.

Update on the Arthur Topham Internet Free Speech Case With Introduction by Terry Long

For perspective on this case, I attended the first high profile "hate" case in Canada in 1984 involving the prosecution of Eckville, Alberta, school teacher James Keegstra in 1984 in Red Deer, Alberta. Keegstra was charged at the time with "Willful Promotion of Hatred Against an Identifiable Group" [Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code] to wit the Jews by teaching, among other things, in his classroom that the socalled "Holocaust" was "exaggerated".

Duriing and even before the trial, the media slandered Keegstra like he was the devil incarnate to the extent that he was essentially convicted by the media before he ever entered the courtroom. To add to the aire of alarm, the Mounties even had sharpshooters on the roof of the courthouse during the trial and even for the preliminary hearing to let people know what a potential "terrorist" this guy Keegstra was. At the end of the trial and in his final address to the jury, the presiding judge stated "The truth is not an issue in this case". It was a railroad job from day one.

Keegstra was finally convicted, lost his career and standing in the community and spent his life savings appealing thrhough the court system until the decision was finally overturned in the Supreme Court of Canada. As Arthur Topham has stated "the porcess is the punishment".

Contrast Keegstra's trial with that of Arthur Topham. The media coverage is nil or minimal. The public approbation is also minimal and the Judge in this case is actually civilized and professional. Methinks our Jewish masters have finally overreached or are getting close to doing so.

Dear Free Speech Supporters,

Radical Press Legal Update #2
November 14th, 2012

Dear Freedom of Speech supporters,

This is the the second Legal Update from RadicalPress.com regarding my pending Sec. 319(2) CC “Willful Promotion of Hatred” court case initiated by Richard Warman and Harry
Abrams on behalf of their taskmaster, B’nai Brith Canada.

Allow me first to say that I am thankful for the opportunity to be still able to post this update on my website without fear of the thought police commissars busting down my door at midnight and hauling me away to some jail cell. Big thanks to my lawyer Douglas Christie for his professional assistance in court yesterday (Tuesday, November 13, 2002) via telephone from his Victoria, B.C. office.

The purpose of yesterday’s court proceedings was to set further court dates in order to deal with two outstanding issues:

1. To argue the issue of what if any restrictions should be imposed on my ability to communicate on the internet.

2. To ask that a clone of the hard drive of one of my Mac computers be returned to my lawyer so that we would have all the necessary information to use in my defense.
Let me elaborate a bit here on what transpired during this session before the representatives of the Queen of England aka “Regina”, aka “the Crown”.

First off with respect to the Honourable Justice Morgan who has been overseeing these proceedings during most of my appearances.

Judge Morgan has, up to this point, behaved in a most exemplary manner toward myself and my lawyer Doug Christie, treating both of us in a respectful manner and in the case of myself, when Doug is not able to be there either by phone or in person, the Judge has been most helpful in pointing out my legal rights and making practical, helpful suggestions.
On the other hand, when it comes to Crown council Jennifer Johnston, I am witnessing a person who has been pursuing this case in a most aggressive and fiercely relentless manner since the start.

Granted she is young and in all likelihood as unaware of what the issue is as any other person who has never taken the time to research the whole phenomenon of Political Zionism and its connection to those who are now out for blood in this case.

Nonetheless her manner in the court room, while a touch more than border-line theatrical, is a thing to behold. I will undoubtedly have more to say about CC Johnston in further updates but I thought it might be appropriate at this point to give readers my personal impression of her demeanour. It really does appear that the more nonsense she receives from her guiding spirit, Det-Cst Terry Wilson of the BC HATE CRIME TEAM, the ‘meanour’ she gets.

When the issue of setting a date for my lawyer to address the draconian conditions that the Crown is again wanting to impose on me (likely for the duration of the upcoming trial by Judge and Jury) CC Johnston did her utmost to inform Judge Morgan that since November 2, 2012 (when I first realized I was free to post on my website once more), I had displayed the unabashed temerity and outright audacity to post 19 new articles!!!
OMG! or as my Talmud-driven detractors over at B’nai Brith Canada might have muttered under their breath, “Oi veh, such chutzpah coming from that anti-Semitic, hate-mongering goy!”

Then, in her ensuing ardour, she added for emphasis a few juicy headline quotes that Det-Cst Terry Wilson had furnished her with; ones that he and his pretty partner in crime, Cst Normandie Levas, obviously gleaned from their daily inspection of my website, RadicalPress.com and figured were more solid proof that I’m continuing in my “Willful Promotion of Hatred” toward the “Jewish religion” and those of “Jewish ethnic origin”.
Your Honour, she said, the defendant has posted such headings as:

“Rothschild Zionist from designed to destroy free speech and control the internet”

“Jewish Supremacist Onslaught against Arthur Topham”

“Canada…. Is under brutal Jewish occupation”

I’m really not sure what she was expecting Judge Morgan to say to this but he responded in an impartial, intelligent manner conveying to the court that basically these are alleged offences, if in fact “offences at all” and then proceeded to go on to set a new date in order to deal with upcoming issues.

I should also add as a final note that the Disclosure documents containing all the information as to what the Crown intends to use in their subsequent court proceedings had still not arrived at Doug Christie’s office so the Judge set a new date of Tuesday, November 20th at 1:30 pm when the Crown and Defence will then try to find a further agreeable date to hold a Preliminary Hearing on the matter.

That is basically what took place yesterday, November 13th, 2012 in the Quesnel Court House.

Default The Jewish Takeover of Canada: The Case of Arthur Topham

Has Canada been taken over by Jews? It would seem so, if the relentless persecution of Canadian patriot and freedom fighter Arthur Topham is anything to go on.

Quote:
Arthur Topham is being hounded by people who want to stifle free speech in Canada, by calling it ‘Hate Speech’.

You don’t have to be a member of MENSA to guess who are the people behind this; they are the same international group who bankrupted Fredrick Töben, in Australia, for his views on the so-called Holocaust and the libels being propagated about Germans.


They’ve done much the same to the British historian, David Irving and the French historian, Robert Faurisson; all honourable men whose only crime was to try and tell the truth.

Among their other pastimes, these people hound anyone who expresses negative views about Zionist, Apartheid Israel and its appalling treatment of the Palestinians, which is wrong by any standards of international law, ethics and morality; not to mention basic humanity.

If this trend against our right to freely and openly express dissent about what we feel are injustices and the illegal actions of individuals or nation continues, who knows what or who will be suppressed next?

IT MAY WELL BE YOU!

B.C. man convicted of promoting hatred against Jews loses constitutional challenge
Lawyer argued that client's communication was justified in free, democratic society


The Canadian Press
February 21, 2017

A B.C. man convicted of wilfully promoting hatred against people of the Jewish religion has lost a constitutional fight over the same issue in court.


Arthur Topham's lawyer argued in B.C. Supreme Court in Quesnel that his client's communication on his website was justified in a free and democratic society and that in this Internet age, the same viewpoints are available in many places.

The Crown noted that the arguments were based on an erroneous assumption that Topham only republished material written by others on his website — which wasn't the evidence put before the jury during his trial in November.

In a decision posted Monday, Justice Bruce Butler says that fact that the Internet has increased people's ability to communicate widely doesn't raise a new legal issue.

In fact, he said in his ruling that the Internet may make the risk of harm associated with hate speech a more pressing issue.

The judge dismissed the constitutional challenge, saying Topham failed to identify any new legal issues under the charter and didn't present any evidence that would shift the debate about the hate statements being justified.
