Alberta updates Crown prosecutor's manual to go after hate crimes

Alberta is taking steps to crack down on hate crime by changing the guidelines used by Crown prosecutors.

Activists and experts commend the development but also advocate for a more comprehensive approach to combating hate.

Prosecutors will now be explicitly directed that it would be in the "general public interest" to prosecute a crime motivated by bias, prejudice or hate based on the victim's ethnicity, gender, religion and sexual orientation, among other markers of identity.
