Canadian Revisionists Boycott Congress Voting

Download PDF for this date

Even though the World Zionist Organization eight days ago permitted the Revisionists’ lists in Canada, where hitherto they had been banned, that party will not take part in the election of delegates to the World Zionist Congress, it was learned yesterday. The elections throughout this country are scheduled to take place tomorrow.

The headquarters of the Revisionists in this city has had instructions sent to all branches in Canada to refrain from voting in the elections. It is believed that the Revisionists have decided that eight days’ time was not sufficient to draw up a slate of candidates, and therefore they have told members to refrain from voting as in former years.
