now calling U.S. home
denier Ernst Zündel has moved
on. Mr. Zündel is now calling the
United States home, claiming he is the
latest example of Canada's "brain drain"
to a more hospitable land.
In a letter this month to the Canadian
Human Rights Tribunal, Mr. Zündel's
lawyer, Barbara Kulaszka, wrote
that "he has moved to the United States
where he now makes his permanent residence
with his wife, Ingrid Rimland.
Unfortunately, the Canadian 'brain drain'
Mr. Zündel's departure from Canada
has been rumoured for many months, but Ms.
Kulaszka's letter offers the first
confirmation of his exit. Police sources
say that Mr. Zündel and his wife may
be living in Tennessee.
Mr. Zündel and Ms. Kulaszka were
unavailable for comment yesterday.
Word of Mr. Zündel's migration
south was welcomed by the Canadian
Jewish Congress, a persistent foe of
the 54-year-old's Holocaust-denial
"We have worked very hard to ensure
that Mr. Zündel and his ilk do not
continue to see Canada as a haven for
Holocaust deniers," said Keith
Landy, Ontario chairman of the
Canadian Jewish Congress. "We have been
vigilant and determined that people like
Mr. Zündel don't live a comfortable
life is Canada when they are purveyors of
falsehoods and lies."
