Hacked Websites show Canadian Connection to White Supremacists
On February 2, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported that hackers in Europe have exposed an international network of white supremacists, including a list of 74 Canadians involved with hate organizations.

The alleged white supremacists’ names were leaked by members of a group of computer hackers called Anonymous on a website called nazi-leaks.net, which is no longer online.

In response, Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, the advocacy arm of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and other Canadian federations, made the following statement:

“We were disturbed to read today’s report, which reminds us that classical antisemitism continues to exist, and occasionally inspire violence, here in Canada. Such toxic hatred disgusts the overwhelming majority of Canadians and stands in stark contrast to Canada’s core values. Today’s report should serve as a wake-up call for all of us to remain vigilant in standing against hate, regardless of the community that is targeted.”
