Hate Arrest Praised
REGINA — Canadian Jewish Congress lauded Regina police for laying hate charges last week against a man who was also fined in 2007 for posting hate online. Police charged Terrence Tremaine, 59, of Regina, with wilfully promoting hate after CJC and Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman made a complaint to police in 2006, CJC said. Police searched Tremaine’s home last July. The former University of Saskatchewan math teacher has been associated with the National Socialist Party of Canada, on whose website he allegedly made the postings, and was fined $4,000 last year based on a human rights complaint from Warman. CJC co-president Sylvain Abitbol said that the postings blame Jews “for virtually all the ills that have beset the world in the last 200 years, from the founding of communism to the [Sept. 11] attack against the United States.”
BB Teams With OU
TORONTO — B’nai Brith Canada will join a number of U.S. Jewish social service agencies in co-sponsoring a March 3 Orthodox Union webcast on “how to to take an interview,” the OU said last week. The webcast is a project of the Orthodox Union Job Board, which helps people find employment. An acting coach will help a live audience work on body language in order to learn “how to express confidence during the interview process,” the OU said. It’s the first in a series of workshops to be webcast at www.ou.org/jobs.
