Hate crime?

I wonder if this would be considered a hate crime:
Wolfgang Droege, a white supremacist who once led the Heritage Front, an infamous continental network of neo-Nazis, was shot dead Wednesday in Toronto's east end, news outlets reported.
If it turns out that this was done out of "hate," I wonder if the killer would ever be prosecuted under Canada's hate laws -- which were practically designed to root out neo-nazi-like speech and protect crimes against identifiable groups.
