The charge that David Croll, Jewish member of the Canadian Parliament, is being kept out of the Cabinet because he is a Jew was made today by the Financial Times in a report from Ottawa.

“Let us face it,” the report says. “If David Croll were not a Jew, he would have been in the Cabinet long ago. He also would have been a leader of the Ontario Liberals, had he gone to the right church.” The article then points out that Mr. Croll is one of the 10 best members of the Canadian Parliament and “represents a spectacular and powerful minority in Canada.”
