Canadian Police Authorities Asked to Investigate Activities of Anti-semitic Group

Download PDF for this date

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police has been asked to make an immediate investigation of the Douglas faction of the Social Credit Movement which is preaching a virulent brand of anti-Semitism. The demand was made by the “Calgary Herald” which editorially declared that the “beginnings of a necfascist movement in Canada are discernible in the activities of this group.”

The Douglasites publish a news organ, “Social Credit,” which in a recent issue blamed all the troubles of the world on the Jews, linked Jews and Communists in a universal conspiracy and wanted immediate action taken against these “enemies of Christian decency.” The National Social Credit party has disavowed the extremist faction.
