Is "Holocaust denial" a crime in Canada?

I am not Canadian and do not pretend to be an expert on Canadian law. From what I have seen, although technically there is no law specifically prohibiting questioning of the "Holocaust" story, it can be labelled as "hate speech" which is illegal in Canada.

A few weeks ago the Canadian government adopted a new definition of "Anti-Semitism" which included accusing Jews of exaggerating the Holocaust:

June 25, 2019 - Canadian government adopts IHRA definition of anti-Semitism ... i-semitism or

Ernst Zundel was jailed in Canada multiple times for publishing "Holocaust denial" literature. Currently, James Sears (Dimitrious Sarafopoulos) has been convicted for "willful promotion of hate" and will soon be sentenced for publishing thoughts and ideas that Jews do not like.

The following Wikipedia article is revealing:

Hate speech laws in Canada ... _in_Canada

Canada's "hate speech" laws were of course written by Jewish lawyers.

Lead Canadian Human Rights Commission investigator Dean Steacy, when asked "What value do you give freedom of speech when you investigate?" responded:
"Freedom of speech is an American concept, so I don't give it any value... It's not my job to give value to an American concept."
(Source: CHRT File No: T1073/5405, Volume 21, May 1, 2007, Page 4793)
"There is a principal which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance -- that principal is contempt prior to investigation."
-- Herbert Spencer

The entire stance of attacking outsiders while hunkered down in a protective cocoon was aptly portrayed by Leonardo da Vinci thus:
