OTTAWA -The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal has fined a Kelowna, B.C., man $6,000 and ordered him to stop using the Internet to disseminate material that exposes Jews, nonwhites and the disabled to hatred. In a decision released yesterday, the tribunal concluded John David Beck was responsible for much of the content on a white supremacist Web site called The tribunal ruled the material on the site “discriminates against a wide range of people, and encompasses comments that are vicious and dehumanizing, especially with respect to the disabled, a particularly vulnerable group.” The site, which no longer operates, purported to speak for those alarmed by “the premeditated decline” of people of European descent.
