Bill Noble: Conditions of Release for Hate Crime should be enforced

Keith Francis William Noble was recently convicted of disseminating hate propaganda contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada, (See Prince George Citizen) but appears to be in violation of the terms and conditions of his parole.

Mr. Justice Glen Parrett rendered the following decision with respect to Mr. Noble's conviction for spreading hate:

[11] Over the term of the probation order, there will be a prohibition on the accused's [Noble] accessing the Internet, a further prohibition from him having Internet service to his residence, and from being in attendance at any establishment whose primary business is the provision of Internet access to the public.

[12] There will be a prohibition on possessing any modem or other device that would enable him [Noble] to access the Internet, and there will be a condition permitting police officers or probation officers to allow them to obtain personal subscriber information from any Internet service provider for the purpose of enforcing that prohibition.

The Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society demands that the Attorney General of British Columbia, where Mr. Noble was prosecuted and convicted, and the Attorney General of Alberta, where Mr. Noble now resides, investigate Mr. Noble's alleged online activity and prosecute Mr. Noble for violation of the conditions of his parole.

If Mr. Noble is not held to account, the Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society fears that it will send a clear message that legal prohibitions against hate propaganda have no weight in Canada and that hate crime will inevitably increase.

The evidence that Mr Noble appears to be in direct violation of the decision rendered by Mr. Justice Glen Parrett includes the following.

Mr. Noble used, and appears to be still using, the online alias "Exterminance". The Exterminance alias can be found on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/Exterminance. The Exterminance alias can be seen in use at Screen Shot Number 2 below.

Mr. Noble's recent comments on YouTube can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYX7Ft0Vonk and his login times  can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/Exterminance. This can be seen at Screen Shot Number 3 below.

Some of Mr. Noble's online "friends" accepted on his Youtube account include members of the notorious racist British National Party. A partial list can be seen at Screen Shot Number 4 below.

Mr. Noble's presence on the racist online discussion group, Stormfront, is captured at Screen Shot Number 5 through 6 below.

Mr. Noble is not timid about his disdain for the terms of his probation and claims that the conviction has no bearing or weight.

Complaints about the continued use of the Internet despite the conditions of Mr. Noble's conditions of parole and Mr. Noble's continuation of involvement in hate groups have been sent to the British Columbia hate crime team and the special Crown Council for hate crime where Mr. Noble was convicted and paroled. However, Mr. Noble has since left the province of British Columbia and now resides near Calgary, Alberta. Crown Council in B.C. responded to these complaints by forwarding the complaints to the Attorney General of Alberta. The Attorney General of Alberta has not responded to these complaints and has taken no action to revoke Mr. Noble's parole.

According to Alan Dutton, Executive Director of the Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society, "this situation is intolerable. How can a convicted hate monger continue to disregard the terms of his probation by moving from one province to another. The lack of enforcement action calls into question the worth of Canadian hate crime laws and the administration of justice."

Dutton points out that provincial and federal governments have promised to take hate crime seriously, but have obviously allowed a person like Mr. Noble to fall between the cracks of provincial jurisdiction.
