Download PDF for this date

One hundred and ten manufacturing plants represented by the Associated Women’s Wear Credit Bureau have officially joined the boycott movement against products emanating from Nazi Germany, it is learned here. The credit bureau is the first organized body in Canada to take such action against the present German regime. About five million dollars annually in trade is involved.

The resolution adopted by the members of the association reads as follows:

“We in Canada protest the uncivilized and unnatural act in depriving the Jewish minority of citizenship, imposing inequitable restrictions and oppressing them both economically and physically. Be it resolved, that the members of the organization, each for himself, severally resolve that he will not purchase any goods, wares or merchandise in whatever form, manner or shape, bearing the imprint ‘Made in Germany’ or, of common knowledge is shown to be manufactured in Germany.”
