Current cyber activity indicates a notorious white supremacist may be cultivating Calgary as a possible hotbed for hate, an investigative group alleged yesterday.

The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) issued a warning 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.

The FSCW alleges pamphlets placed in some local publications last month insinuating minorities were the cause behind current crimes, were the work of Noble.

The Calgary Police Service investigated the flyers, which were placed in a number of issues of the weekly publication, but no charges were laid, said Insp. Bob Couture.

The FSCW, a Toronto- and L.A.-based organization that investigates hate crime and promotes tolerance, also alleges Noble is the one who registered a new supremacist website this June.
