Another category of hate crimes includes hate propaganda: advocating genocide and/or public incitement of hatred and willful promotion of hatred. A hate ‘incident’ is any behaviour that is motivated by bias against a victim’s race, national or ethnic origin, language, colour, religion, sex, age, mental or physical disability or sexual orientation, but is not a criminal act (e.g. racial slurs against a person or group). The information listed in this online map is based on cases of hate crimes, alleged or confirmed, and hate incidents, reported to NCCM, and/or reported to the police and/or reported to media. All cases are first verified before being posted. To report a crime or incident, click here & contact your local police service.

OpenMedia’s crowdsourced Privacy Plan outlines common sense steps to strengthen privacy safeguards for all of us.

The government has just rammed its anti-privacy Bill C-51 through the Senate. Now we need to tell Party Leaders to #KillC51 and implement this positive alternative.
