Canadian Human Rights Tribunal slams Richard Warman and says that Mr. Warman’s posting on Stormfront and VNN are “..both disappointing and disturbing”
Further Mr. Warman’s postings “…could have precipitated further hate messages in response.”
The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal has issued a very interesting ruling in the case of Warman vs.
The ruling can be found on the Tribunal’s website at:
To briefly sum up: The Tribunal found Ouwebdyk had violated section 13, and is going to issue a lifetime speech ban – known as a Cease and Decist order. But that order is stayed until the final outcome of the Lemire case.
Richard Warman had requested a $7,500 fine against the
Here is the ruling verbatim, more analysis will come later:
 During his cross-examination, Mr. Warman admitted (after initially denying) that he had participated in communicating messages on Internet Websites similar to the Northern Alliance Website utilizing pseudonyms such as "Pogue Mahone" and "Axetogrind".
 In one of several such communications that was entered into evidence during his cross-examination that Mr. Warman admitted having made, Mr. Warman using the name as "Pogue Mahone Forum Member" posted the following on the stormfront.org/forum Website on July 18, 2004: (The bolded words are Mr. Warman's. The italicized words are a quote that he has included from a previous post made by a "S88")
He has previously expressed a clear interest in the promotion of the interest in the promotion of the interests of
A recent announcement by your Federal government regarding a planned initiative to combat racism in response to recent anti-Semitic crimes is evidence of a misguided agenda. Such a plan will not only be a monumental waste of tax payer's money, but will also lead

 In another posting entered into evidence during his cross-examination and the authorship of which was admitted to by Mr. Warman, Mr. Warman as "Axetogrind Junior Member" posted the following on the "VNN (Vanguard News Network) Forum" on January 5, 2005.
 Mr. Warman stated that the communications quoted in the previous two paragraphs did not "cross the line" into hate messaging nor did they provoke hate messages by others. He stated that the inclusion in his postings of possible hate messages from others were inadvertent slips by him in sending messages over the Internet. He further stated that his postings were intended to assist him in his quest for information about persons using the Internet to communicate discriminatory hate messages.
 I do not see any acceptable reason for Mr. Warman to have participated on the Stormfront or Vanguard sites, since there appears to be ample easily obtained messages on these sites available without his involvement. Moreover, it is possible that his activity in this regard, could have precipitated further hate messages in response. His explanation for including other hate messages in his postings by mistake seems very weak to me.
 Mr. Warman has, with the assistance of the Commission, instituted most of the s. 13 (1) complaints under the Act that have come before the Tribunal. He has been very successful in these cases and has garnered accolades for his work in this regard. The evidence in this case of his participation on Internet sites similar to the
