Bill 206, the Societies (Preventing the Promotion of Hate) Amendment Act went through its second reading in the Alberta Legislature yesterday and was unanimously supported. In today’s episode, I talk with Irfan Chaudry who started an initiative called Stop Hate AB back in February 2017. Stop Hate AB is a site that gathers data on non-criminal incidents of possible hate-related crime in Alberta and shares the data with local and provincial authorities. We also talk about how reporting is verified before being added to the data.
