A white supremacist from Toronto has been sentenced for committing hate crimes in Nova Scotia and has been sentenced to two years in a federal jail.

Donna Marie Upson walked into a Baptist church, identified herself as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and told the black minister that the KKK would get rid of black people.

In a victim impact statement Reverand Elias Mutales said the experience made him fear for his safety, his family and his church family. He said he hopes that Upson gets help.

In court Upson claimed she didn't mean to threaten anyone, and said that because of her temper, sending her to jail would do more harm than good.

Upson has five previous convictions for racially motivated crimes and they include assault with a weapon and uttering threats.
