CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION

Mr. Arthur Topham
4633 Barbeville [sic] Highway
Quesnel, British Columbia V2J 6T8
Dear Mr. Topham:
I am writing to inform you of the decision taken by the Canadian Human Rights Commission in the complaint (20071016) of Harry Abrams and the League for Human Rights of BÃ¢â‚¬â„¢nai Brith Canada against you.
Before rendering their decision, the members of the Commission reviewed the report disclosed to you previously and any submission(s) filed in response to the report. After examining this information, the Commission decided, pursuant to paragraph 44(3)(a) of the Canadian Human Rights Act, that the Commission request the Chairperson of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal institute an inquiry into the complaint because:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Ã‚Â the material appears to meet the criteria for hatred and contempt as outlined in the case law and therefore appears to be likely to expose Jewish persons to hatred and contempt.
Further information will be provided to you by the Tribunal regarding the conduct of proceedings.
Secretary to the Commission
