Criminal hate-speech charges against Your Ward News are just latest in a string of legal battles

On Wednesday, Toronto Police arrested James Sears and Leroy St. Germaine, the editor and publisher of Your Ward News, Canada’s largest pro-Nazi newspaper. They surrendered to the police and are each charged with two counts of wilful promotion of hatred against an identifiable group, namely Jews and women.

It is believed to be the first time that hate crime charges have been laid on the grounds of promoting hatred towards women in Canada. Your Ward News — and its editor, James Sears — have advocated for and defended sexual assault against women and underage girls.
