Jewish merchants in the Province of Quebec have complained to the Canadian Jewish Congress that their business is being serious affected by growth of the economic nationalism movement, the economic committee of the Congress reported here.

The movement, the committee points out, has the same slogan as in Poland several years ago: “Buy From Our Own.” Commenting on it, the committee declared that the movement “is not even in the interests of those who propagate it and is detrimental to the general interests of Canada.”
