A Vancouver resident who expresses admiration for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis on YouTube says he's been "fired" by Capilano University as a continuing-education instructor.

Brian Ruhe taught courses on "Mindfulness Meditation for Stress Reduction" and "Buddhist Philosophy and Vipassana Meditation" at the North Vancouver campus as recently as February.

In an August 9 video, Ruhe tells free-speech activist Paul Fromm—identified as a Canadian white supremacist by the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center—that he was informed in July that Capilano wouldn't be renewing his contract and that complaints about his YouTube videos were the reason.

According to Ruhe, his controversial views on the Third Reich and the Holocaust aren't part of his Buddhist meditation classes, so the college is trampling on his right to free expression in addition to harming his livelihood.
