    “Richard Warman, a prominent human rights lawyer in Ottawa, said the CCLA [Canadian Civil Liberties Association] has intervened in a number of cases he’s prosecuted in order to “support the right of neo-Nazis to spread hate propaganda attacking our fellow citizens who are targeted by bigotry.”
    However, Warman noted that the courts have rejected the CCLA’s “U.S.-style arguments.”
    “I would have hoped they would be more focused on the civil liberties of the victims than their oppressors, but that’s their choice to make,” Warman said.
