Description: "01/04/1982: Five members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) distributed racist and fascist literature outside the Communist Party of Canada - Marxist-Leninist (CPC-ML) headquarters in Vancouver. Alan Hooper, a member of the KKK, assaulted the manager of the bookstore when he opposed the provocation. The police were notified. The police, according to CPC-ML, were reluctant to lay charges. Only after repeated attempts on the part of the manager of the bookstore did a Justice of the Peace agree to lay the charges of assault. In August, Hooper was convicted of assaulting a member of the CPC-ML. He was charged $100, placed on probation, ordered not to have any further contact with the man he attacked, and to keep off the block where the CPC-ML bookstore was located. Conspiracy to commit murder was also tossed out."
