Download PDF for this date

Anti-Semitic leaders in the Montreal and Ottawa districts have entered actively into the campaign for the Oct. 14 Federal elections.

The Parliamentary candidate in the East Riding section of Ottawa is Jean Tisseau, suspended detective who is to be sentenced shortly by an Ottawa court for libelling A.J. Freiman, president of the Canadian Zionist Organization.

Adrian Arcand, editor of Le Patriote, anti-Semitic publication, is running in the St. Mary district of Montreal. In connection with the campaign, circulars and placards are being distributed in Montreal reading, “The Jew is a snake.”
