    Some context, however, is that it is not news that some crazy RWer from Alberta says something incredibly stupid - heck, isn't that a long-time hotbed of Holocaust denialism?
    I'm not so sure about that.  High-profile racists and holocaust deniers like Ernst Zundel, Don Andrews and Paul Fromm are (or, were) all based in Ontario.
    I vaguely recall somebody being prosecuted for that in Alberta based on Canadian law back in the 1980s, was it?
    You're thinking of James Keegstra, of Eckville, Alberta.  But, it's important to note that his trial and conviction for hate speech was in 1984.

    There be no shelter, here. The front line is everywhere.
