Canadian Parliament Asked to Investigate Anti-jewish Propaganda in Quebec Province

Download PDF for this date

A demand that a Royal Commission be set up to investigate anti-Semitic and other subversive activities in the province of Quebec was voiced in the Federal Parliament today by Fred Rose, one of the two Jewish members.

In his maiden speech, the Jewish deputy, who is a Labor Progressive member from Montreal, condemned anti-Semitism as a movement aimed against the unity of Canada. The anti-Jewish literature which is being disseminated in Quebec was a disgrace, he said.
