Canadian Jewish Youth Urged to Go to Israel; Ontario Training Center to Expand

A resolution urging Canadian Jewish youth “to join the ranks of the Chalutz movement” and proceed to Israel to establish new collective settlements there was adopted here at a conference of the Canadian Association for Labor Israel, attended by 122 delegates representing Jewish Communities in western Canada.

M.A. Gray, member of the Provincial Parliament of Manitoba, was reelected chairman of the Association. The conference decided to develop the Chalutz training farm at Smithville, Ontario. It also adopted a resolution thanking the Canadian Government for its position at the United Nations with regard to the admission of Israel to U.N. membership.
