Canada Starts Radio Programs Devoted to Fighting Bias in Employment

The Government of Canada inaugurated yesterday a series of five radio programs devoted to fighting prejudice and discrimination in employment. The series, prepared under the auspices of the Department of Labor, will be heard on 64 stations between November 18 and December 15, A similar series of eight programs in 1954 was highly successful and was eventually picked up by 80 stations across the Dominion.

A convention of the British Columbia Federation of Labor, held in Vancouver recently, called on the government to take immediate steps to make the FPC act more effective through an educational program. The government was also asked to enact a Fair Accommodation Practices Act aimed at ending discrimination for race, religion and color in real estate transactions and rentals.
