TORONTO — An alleged neo-Nazi musician who posed for a picture with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he wants his name cleared.
Jon Latvis was visiting Toronto from Latvia and posed for a picture with Ford in January at the New Year's Levee at city hall. He's wearing a uniform in the photograph.
Warren Kinsella, a blogger who often writes for the Toronto Sun, posted the picture to his blog last week and alleged Latvis is a neo-Nazi musician who played guitar for Rahowa, a white supremacist rock band.
"I'm not a racist, I'm not a neo-Nazi and I'm not an anti-Semite," Latvis said Tuesday from Latvia, adding he's no longer in the band.
Latvis said he only played with the band a few times in a studio, "not knowing what their politics were," after being asked for the favour in a bar.
"If I'd have known what the group was going to be singing about, I would've told them to take a hike," said Latvis, adding he may sue Kinsella....................http://www.lfpress.com/news/canada/2012 ... 52536.html
