Ontario Attorney General Chris Bentley says he will review a request by the Canadian Jewish Congress to examine anti-Semitic web postings that resulted in a provincial police investigation, but no charges being laid.
A spokeswoman for Bentley says the Jewish group asked the attorney general Tuesday to take another look at whether the online statements constituted hate speech.
The RCMP first investigated online postings attributed to a Salman Hossain after complaints the remarks violated Criminal Code provisions outlawing statements that “wilfully promote hatred against an identifiable group.”
The investigation was turned over to the Ontario Provincial Police, which said Monday that no charges are forthcoming.
Mark Goldberg of the Jewish congress’s Ontario chapter says he’s not satisfied by the findings of provincial police.
