Canadian Fascist Parade Homeless

Download PDF for this date

Fascists in this city are gloomy today, having learned that their July First Confederation Day parade is doomed to oblivion due to steps taken by the Metropolitan Commission to have the demonstration banned everywhere in Montreal and environs, as well as in all municipalities on Montreal Island.

The Metropolitan Commission’s decision was preceded by an announcement from Mayor Herve Ferland, of Verdun, denying the statement previously attributed to him that the Fascist Federation had permission to hold its parade on Verdun’s streets.

At the commission’s meeting Alderman Schwartz, a prominent member of Montreal’s Jewish colony, condemned the Fascist Federation of Canada as a “a brown-shirt racket.”
