Jewish leaders in Canada are of the opinion that there are grave dangers and difficulties in a proposal advanced recently for legislation to the anti-Semitism in Canada, it was announced today by the Canadian Jewish Congress.

The subject was discussed at a conference of the Dominion Council of the Canadian Jewish Congress and has been receiving constant attention. The Jewish Congress has warned the Jews here against irresponsible steps by men and groups “seeking to exploit community interest in this subject for their own ends.” It says that the matter will continue to receive the utmost attention and reveals that consultations “with learned counsel” are in progress with regard to the proposal.
