Toronto Mayor Forbids Display of Swastika

The statement of Mayor Stewart of this city, forbidding display of the swastika here as a result of the week’s serious rioting follows:

“From recent occurrences in our city it must be apparent that the display in any form of the ‘Swastika’ Emblem is provocative and tends to incite riotous conduct and a disturbance of the peace which is not at all in keeping with the good name of our city or for the public good.

“I therefore wish to warn all citizens that such use of this ‘Swastika’ Emblem will render the person so using same liable to prosecution to the full extent of the law.

“I also wish to warn all persons against taking the law into their own hands, or taking part in an unlawful assembly. Peace, order and good government is my desire. I invite co-operation.”
