York University is taking "appropriate disciplinary actions" against a student being investigated by hate crimes units of the Ontario Provincial Police and Toronto Police Service for anti-Semitic postings on a conspiracy-theory website that advocate genocide against Jews.
The National Post first reported in a Tuesday, March 2 article that only months after Ontario Attorney General Chris Bentley decided not to press ahead with hate crimes charges against Salman Hossain - a decision that Canadian Jewish Congress CEO Bernie Farber partly blamed on the length of time it took to conduct the investigation - the York student is back on police radar for new online hate writings.

As you may know, right-wing talk show hosts have been bringing race-based fear mongering into the mainstream, but FOX's Glenn Beck just took it to another level. On Tuesday, Beck said:

The Globe and Mail reported that three men were arrested Tuesday after an attack Friday night on a black man in Courtenay, B. C. was posted on Youtube.
Jay Phillips was in the parking lot of his apartment complex when three men drove by in a red pick-up truck yelling racial slurs and saying "we're going to lynch you." When he yelled back at the men, they turned the truck around and came after him.
Phillips fought back while the three men punched and kicked him, before eventually pinning him to the ground and attacking him while he lay on the ground in the fetal position. When other cars entered the parking lot, Phillips managed to get back on his feet and continued to fight back while the men retreated to their truck.
