From the Toronto Sun:
Jean-Claude Rochefort, the man who defended the actions of killer Marc Lepine on his blog failed in his attempt to be released from jail Wednesday.
The court noted in its judgment that Rochefort's blog "invited men to kill women solely because they are women."
Rochefort, 61, defended his blog, which sung the praises of Lepine, the shooter behind the 1989 massacre that killed 14 women at Montreal's Ecole Polytechnique. Lepine committed the shooting after multiple failed attempts to get into the school himself. He blamed feminism for ruining his life and disagreed with women being allowed to work in jobs that had been traditionally reserved for men.
The Crown, meanwhile, tried unsuccessfully to bring charges of inciting hatred towards women against Rochefort.
Rochefort will stand trial on May 3 for other accusations of uttering death threats against women, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in jail.
