The following is an example of a sec. 13 human rights complaint and is provided for educational purposes as an example of how to make a complaint regarding hate on the Internet - cyberhate. The result of the complaint can be found at the Canadian Human Rights Commission website. Some results are posted on www.stopracism.ca as examples of the types of evidence and argument that Tribunals find relevant.
Name and Address of Respondents:
1) Canadian Heritage Alliance (CHA)
2) Melissa Guille
[home address removed]
website involved: canadianheritagealliance
Address where incident occurred (if different from above):
Internet (see website above)
The Canadian Heritage Alliance and Melissa Guille have discriminated against persons or groups of persons on the basis of sexual orientation, religion, race, colour, and national or ethnic origin, by repeatedly communicating messages through an Internet website that would likely expose gays and lesbians, Jews, Muslims, First Nations, blacks, Arabs, other non-whites, and Roma (aka Gypsies) to hatred and/or contempt contrary to section 13(1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA) .
Date of alleged conduct: 21 July 2002 and ongoing.
I have visited the CHA website on a number of occasions since July of 2002.
Melissa Guille is the registered owner and administrator of the website.
Although a broad range of discriminatory materials have been included with the evidence accompanying this complaint, representative samples are listed below.
Forum postings in which it is argued that the Holocaust did not occur, that the gas chambers in concentration camps did not exist, that the media is controlled by Jews, and that Jewish owned businesses should be boycotted. Ms. Guille participated in this forum thread.
Forum postings in which it is suggested that white women who have relationships with black men "feel sorry for these nogs". That most whites who have relationships with black men have AIDS and/or many sexually transmitted diseases as a result. That white women who have sexual relationships with black men deserve to die as a result, and that their children will have AIDS too. This is the 'clean' version after Melissa Guille herself edited one of the postings citing concern over Canadian hate laws.
There Will Be Hell to Pay by William Pierce - This is the 'clean' version posted by Guille in order to attempt to protect herself against Canadian anti-hate legislation. Claims slavery is legal in Israel, that one of Israel's embassies ran a child prostitution ring, that the Jews control the media, that 3 Jews controlled a huge child pornography ring from Moscow that showed children being raped, tortured and killed, that those who control the media "should be exterminated root and branch as a class", that Russians have valid reasons for hating the Jews, that Jews are responsible for organized crime in Russia, that Jews murdered tens of millions of Russians, that Jews have forced thousands of young Russian women into prostitution, and now they kidnap Russian children to rape and sexually torture to death for child-porn films. That those Jews not involved in child-pornography cover for those who do.
Note that the full version of this article has already been found by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to constitute hate messaging in the Warman v. Kyburz case.
(2003 CHRT 18)
The Black Death - That non-white immigration and miscegenation is genocide against whites that is worse than the Black Plague that struck Europe in the Middle Ages. That miscegenation is like AIDS. That non-white immigration "promises to wipe out all Europeans".
Our Christian Identity - That Jews murdered Jesus and are the anti-Christ. Jews are the literal children of Satan. That Jews promote non-white immigration and miscegenation in order to serve Satan and destroy 'Western man'. That it is our duty to drive out the Jews. That Jews are wicked and that we must begin the eternal destruction of the wicked.
Shocked, Shocked to Find Racial Polarization Going On! - African immigrants to France are annihilating Parisian and French civilization. Millions of African and Muslim immigrants are torching Paris, and their cousins in London, England are engaging in cannibalism and human sacrifice. African immigrants in London eat rat feces as a delicacy. "...if you allow millions of savages to invade your country, the country will become a land of savages."
9/11 Wrapped Up - That no Jews died in the attacks in New York City on
11 September 2001 and that this was because they were warned in advance to stay away. That Osama bin Laden is Jewish and that the attacks were in fact part of a Jewish plot.
Museum of Jewish Crimes - [This collection repeats historical anti-semitic hate propaganda that purports to show Jewish "crimes" throughout the past several hundred years.] That Judaism is Demonic and a "Darkness unto the nations." That Jews seek to "Invade, Dominate, Enslave" wherever they are with the goal of Jewish world domination. [p. 1 of 14] "Judaism is ...like some pernicious infection that destroys the body that it has invaded." [p. 3]
Our anti-Semitism, therefore, is not to be confused with calls for violence,
for disorder, or for pointless recriminations; on the contrary, it must
be a doctrine of clairvoyance, of systematic protection; our anti-Semitism
will be embodied in binding regulations and adamantine laws that must
and shall be - like it or not! - enforced by the full power of the State!
Spare a Tear for the Dead of Auschwitz. The only living being that
the Germans exterminated at Auschwitz was - the louse.
Either/Or. We must now solve the most urgent of all problems, and
that is, of course, the Jewish Problem; there are only two alternatives:
we must expel them, or we must massacre them! [p. 12]
Based on the foregoing examples, I believe that the Canadian Heritage Alliance and Melissa Guille have discriminated against persons or groups of persons on the basis of sexual orientation, religion, race, colour, and national or ethnic origin, by repeatedly communicating messages through an Internet website that would likely expose gays and lesbians, Jews, Muslims, First Nations, blacks, Arabs, other non-whites, and Roma (aka Gypsies) to hatred and/or contempt contrary to section 13(1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA) .
I thank-you in advance for your work on this matter.
