A European hacking group Wednesday released a list of names and contact information for 74 Canadians with ties to the hate groups on a Web site called nazi-leaks.net, which is now offline, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.
"It is an invasion of privacy," said Joel Henry of Langley, British Columbia. "I have my beliefs and I still have my beliefs. It's just certain members of the group want to go out and beat the [expletive] out of people and I don't condone that."
New Westminster police detective Terry Wilson, head of the British Columbia hate crime team, said his team isn't sure if the hacked information is useful or not.
"Membership [in these groups] is not against the law," he said. "It's when your motivations make you do criminal offenses, that's when it becomes a police issue and that's when the B.C. hate crime team and other hate crime teams across the country get involved."
