CBC ordered to turn over Zundel tapes


Globe and Mail Update

An Ontario judge has ruled that the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. must turn over videotapes of a demonstration outside a jail where Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel was behind bars.

The broadcaster had fought against release of the material, which includes out-takes from a television program called The Nerve. The CBC crew filmed 90 minutes of the demonstration on Sept. 12, 2004, outside the Metro West Detention Centre in Toronto, where Zundel supporters clashed with an anti-racist group. There was little violence, but three pro-Zundel demonstrators were charged with weapons offences.
