Canadian Party Charged in Parliament with Anti-semitism

Download PDF for this date

The Canadian Parliament has again heard the accusation that the Social Credit Party is steeped in anti-Semitism and racialism, although the charges were denied by Solon Low, the party’s national leader.

The charges were made by M. J. Coldwell, leader of the Cooperative Common wealth Federation, who stated that racial prejudice and dictatorial tendencies have been a part of general Social Credit propaganda since the movement was founded by Maj. Douglas and they still are used by Mr. Low and his followers. “Condemnation of ideas, policies or movements which they dislike are followed by the naming of Jewish persons” having a real or supposed connection with such policies or movements, Mr. Coldwell asserted.
