Preview Clip

A Nova Scotia man who set fire to a two-meter cross on an interracial couple's lawn was found guilty of inciting racial hatred. Twenty-year-old Justin Rehberg (RAY'-burg) was to be sentenced in Windsor in mid-December. According to an agreed statement of facts, Shayne Howe, who is black, and Michelle Lyon, who is white, saw a cross burning on their property in Poplar Grove just after midnight on February 21st. Outside court on November 5th, Howe told reporters the judge's ruling shows Canada doesn't accept that kind of behavior. (Four days later, Justin's older brother, Nathan Rehberg, was found guilty in connection with the same incident and faced sentencing in January, 2011.)
