The 12-member jury found Arthur Topham guilty of one count of wilful promotion of hatred, and not guilty of the second count of promoting hatred.

The verdict came down around 11:30 Thursday morning (Nov. 12) after more than two days of jury deliberations.

Crown will be asking for bail restrictions and sentencing has been stayed until further notice.

Topham was arrested and his house searched in May 16, 2012 after it was determined “there were reasonable grounds the offence of promotion of hatred was committed.”
