Edmonton police shut down white supremacist website, seize Nazi paraphernalia

Edmonton Journal/May 15, 2004

Edmonton -- Police have shut down a white supremacist website following a complaint from an Alberta anti-racism group.

The Western Canada for Us site initially seemed only to be recruiting members and promoting white pride, said Charlene Hay of the Northern Alberta Alliance on Race Relations.

"But when you get deeper into their links, we actually got a page where there was a picture of some white people beating up a person of colour," Hay told CBC Radio.

Officers also raided a south Edmonton home on May 7 and seized about 40 items including computer hard drives, Nazi paraphernalia and books promoting white supremacy.

"We're involved in some proactive strategies in regards to this type of material, and also some public complaints," hate crimes investigator Const. Steve Camp said of the raid.
