school teacher from
Eckville, Alberta, has been
remanded for trial on
charges of violating Cana-
da's anti-hate laws.
Judge Douglas Crowe
ruled after a nine-day pre-
liminary hearing in Red
Deer, Alberta, that he had
heard sufficient evidence to
warrant trial. He was refer-
ring to testimony by former
pupils that Keegstra used
his classroom to preach vir-
ulent anti-Semitism and in-
cite hatred of Jews.
No date was set for the
trial which is not expected
to begin until the fall ses-
sion of the courts. The
anti-hate provisions of
Canada's Criminal Code
were enacted 14 years ago.
So far there have been no
convictions under the sta-
tute.
Sherron Wolny, now 19,
an honors graduate and
class valedictorian of the
Eckville High School, tes-
tified that Keegstra re-
ferred to Jews as "thugs"
and "money thugs." "You
got a better 'mark if you
wrote what Mr. Keegstra
said" on examinations, she
told the court.
Blair Andrew, 17, who
appeared as a defense wit-
ness at the hearing said he
believed Keegstra and to
this day lives in fear of the
Jews, though he also feels
ashamed. He said he was
taught in Keegstra's class,
when he was 13, that there
was "a Jewish conspiracy to
take over the world" and
that "your average Jew was
a criminal gutter rat and
cut throat."
Another former student,
Trudi Roth, said Keegstra
taught that President
Roosevelt was a "dupe of
Zionism" and committed
suicide when Stalin refused
to "make him president of
the world." She -said that
when she wrote an essay on
Zionism based on an
encyclopedia article,

Keegstra gave her a failing
mark and warned her to
'base her essays on his notes,
not other sources.
Dana Kriel, 19, also a de-
fense witness, said
Keegstra referred to an
"elite group"of about
seven-eight percent of all
Jews as being responsible
for plots and atrocities.
These "elite" were described
by Keegstra as "Bolshevik
Jews," "Zionist Jews' ' and
"Khazar Jews." The
Khazars were a Central
Asian people whose rulers
converted to Judaism in the
Eighth Century.
Twice during the hearing
defense counsel Douglas
Christie read long passages
from the Talmud. Danny
Desrosiers, 19, said
Keegstra contended that
the Talmud gave Jews the
right to kill or steal from
Gentiles.
Crown prosecutors Bruce
Fraser and Larry Phillippe
introduced essays written
by three students which
praised Hitler and said
Judaism was the enemy of
Christianity. Ms. Wolny
testified that she was
taught in Keegstra's class
that Jews paid for Lincoln's
assassination, provoked
World Wars I and II and the
Russian revolution and
plan to control the world by
the year 2000.
Keegstra was fired from
the Alberta school system
on the complaint of parents
that he was indoctrinating
their children with anti-
Semitism. Several of the
parents testified at the
hearing. None are Jews and
no Jews live in Eckville.
Keegstra, who served as
mayor of Eckville, was de-
feated in a re-election bid
last year. While his teach-
ing was not a campaign is-
sue, the voters were repor-
tedly repelled by his views
and angered by the disre-
pute he brought on their
town, a farm community of
about 900.
