Canadian Man Willed His Estate To American Neo-Nazi Group. Jewish Groups Intervene. Incl. UPDATE

Neo-Nazi estate McCorkill

CBC NEWS   By CBC Staff & Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon    June 09, 2016

Three outside groups will be allowed to weigh in on a legal dispute over a New Brunswick man’s estimated $250,000 estate being left to an American neo-Nazi group.

Robert McCorkill (pic above) died in 2004, leaving $250,000 in artifacts and investments to the National Alliance, a white supremacist group in the United States. McCorkill’s sister, Isabelle McCorkill, wants the will quashed and filed an injunction last month.

When the matter goes to court in September, two prominent Jewish groups and the provincial attorney general will join her side. Anita Bromberg is the head of legal affairs with B’nai Brith Canada — one of three groups granted intervener status in the McCorkill case.

She said neo-Nazi beliefs are on the rise in Europe and a six figure gift to the National Alliance could breathe life into the movement here. “There’s still an attraction to this philosophy, and to revive it is a dangerous concept,” she said.

B’nai Brith will be joined by the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, another of the interveners Richard Marceau, the general counsel for the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, shares Bromberg’s concerns.

Neo-nazi Alliance“The National Alliance (pic on left) is much weaker than it was in the past and we don’t want to take any chances of money breathing new life into it,” he said. The province of New Brunswick, represented by the attorney general, will also have standing at next month’s hearing.

All the interveners will be able to make submissions, trying to convince the court to wipe away McCorkill’s will.

The lawyer representing the interests of the National Alliance did not object to any of the group’s weighing in. Source:

UPDATE: June 09, 216  Supreme Court to rule on Robert McCorkill estate dispute

The Supreme Court of Canada is expected to decide today whether it will review a New Brunswick ruling that barred an American neo-Nazi group from inheriting a Saint John man’s estimated $250,000 estate.

The Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFE) is seeking leave to appeal the Robert McCorkill case, arguing it is “of national importance.” Paul Fromm, director and founder of the non-profit Ontario-based group, contends it is “the most important property rights case of the decade.” “Freedom of belief, freedom of expression and property rights are on the line,” he has said.

Fromm, whose group has lobbied for Holocaust deniers such as Ernst Zundel in the past, has described the decision as “horrific.” “It opens the door to endless litigation whenever a bequest is made to a controversial person or organization,” Fromm has said. “It nixes the right of a person to dispose of his property as he sees fit.”

“Robert McCorkill lived in Saskatoon and Ottawa before moving to Saint John, where he died in 2004.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
