Charter Challenge Of Hate Crime Laws In Quesnel On Hold

A chartar challenge to Canada’s hate crime laws, which began in Quesnel this week, will continue later this month in Vancouver.

Arthur Topham, found guilty of a hate crime back in November, launched the challenge citing freedom of speech.

An expert witness has yet to testify as they ran out of time so that will now happen on the 19th.

A 12-member jury found Topham guilty on one of two counts of promoting hatred against an identifiable group, in this case those of the Jewish faith.

The charge that he was found guilty on was for comments made on his Radical Press website between April of 2011 and May of 2012.

The Justice delayed sentencing for Topham following the trial until after this charter challenge is heard.
