On January 7, 2020 CTV Montreal reported that Valentin Auclair, a 38-year-old man from Granby, Quebec, is facing two counts of publicly inciting hatred and one count of advocating genocide. The charges relate to communications between July 30 and Aug. 10, 2019 and between Nov. 4, 2019 and Jan. 5, 2020.
According to CTV, “Granby police said they were tipped off Sunday by a person who spotted the accused’s posts on Russian social media site VK, which allegedly included images promoting Aryan white supremacy and hateful comments about Jews, Muslims, the LGBTQ community and other minority groups. He also allegedly sympathized with neo-Nazis.”
The Canadian Jewish News (CJN) reported that some of Valentin Auclair’s statements read:
“Our cause is bigger than me. Never am I going to kneel to international Jewry.”
“The concentration camp is the greatest Nazi innovation. That permitted the extermination of a pile of Jews. That is good riddance.”
“That [Kristallnacht] is the day our good Fuehrer acted legitimately to defend against the Jewish cancer that was eating away Germany. That’s the beginning of the liberation of Europe from the Jew. But alas, after 80 years, we again need crystal nights to purify Europe of international Jewry and … foreign occupation: immigration.”
