Canadian Government Charged with Admitting Former Nazi Members As Displaced Persons

Download PDF for this date

The charge that some displaced persons who had entered Canada were former German storm troopers who at one time had been brought here as prisoner of war, was made at the annual convention of the Provincial Command of the Canadian Corps Association.

A resolution was adopted asking the authorities to remedy the apparent laxity in the screening process. Previously the country was aroused over the disclosure that prominent Frenchman, who had collaborated with the Nazis during the Vichy regime, were allowed to remain in the country by special permission of the government.
