Hate crime conviction a first for Calgary (Canada)

For the first time in Calgary's history there has been a hate crime conviction.
It comes after a teenager pleaded guilty to covering several sites, including the Holocaust memorial, with anti-Semitic graffiti.

"I think it sends a strong message to people who are biased, or prejudiced, in any way that this sort of activity and those sort of actions won't be tolerated in Calgary," says Chief Rick Hanson, from the Calgary Police Service.

The conviction is a relief for Calgary's Jewish community. "It sends a message that communities within Canada – like the Jewish community and other minority communities – are Canadians and attacks on us are attacks on Canadians," says Adam Singer from the Calgary Jewish Community Council.

Because the convicted man committed crimes when he was 17, the Youth Criminal Justice Act prevents the release of his name.

His sentencing is scheduled to take place on October 15th
