It appears Doug Christie, the Victoria-based free speech lawyer who represented Holocaust deniers Jim Keegstra and Ernst Zundel, is publicly throwing his support behind Stockwell Day.
The Calgary Sun recently reported that Christie will speak at an upcoming rally of his provincial Western Canada Conference party in Edmonton.
"He's basically saying that they're going to throw their support, for this election at least, behind the Alliance," says Sun reporter Rick Bell.
Day spokesperson Phil Von Finckenstein says they're having nothing to do with Christie's November 18 rally at the Jubilee Auditorium.
"It's completely independent of us. Mr. Day's not even going to be in the province on that date."
Christie did not return NOW's calls.
