OCLA petition says hate charge against Kevin Johnston ‘systemically political’

The Ontario Civil Liberties Association (OCLA) is asking the Attorney General of Ontario to reverse his decision to charge a Mississauga resident with a hate crime.

The organization has launched an online petition intended for Yasir Naqvi regarding the charge against Kevin Johnston of wilful promotion of hatred.

“The Ontario Civil Liberties Association believes that the proceedings against Mr. Johnston are systemically political in nature and should not be consuming public, police, and judicial resources,” says the petition, which was launched last week.

“We believe that the proceedings are harmful to Canadian society, in addition to being unacceptably unjust towards a citizen.”
