CALGARY — Current cyber activity indicates that a notorious white supremacist may be cultivating Calgary as a possible hot bed for hate, an investigative group alleged yesterday.
The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) issued a warning that Bill Noble, the man behind infamous websites such as stormfront.org and exterminance.org, is allegedly focusing his energies on Calgary, said the centre’s director of national affairs Leo Adler.
“His new online initiatives are cause for great concern and vigilance by Canadians,” he said.

“Noble has begun to re-acquaint himself among global racists on popular Internet chat forums in recent weeks and all indications suggest he will continue to peddle intolerant ideologies geared specifically to the Calgary area.”
Noble is in B.C. awaiting trial on charges of wilfully promoting hatred.
He allegedly registered a new supremacist website, Aryan Guard, in June.
The FSCW alleges pamphlets that were placed in some issues of Fast Forward magazine last month, insinuating minorities were the cause behind Calgary’s current crime wave, were the work of Noble.
The Calgary Police Service investigated the flyers, but no charges were laid, said Insp. Bob Couture.
