Thirty Summer Resorts in Canada Indicate Anti-jewish Discrimination

Download PDF for this date

Thirty summer resorts out of 106 in the Province of Ontario have indicated “discriminatory practices” against would-be Jewish guests, a test survey conducted here has shown; according to the Canadian Jewish Congress.

In the test, letters asking for identical accommodations in summer resorts were sent last month by one applicant named Sol Cohen and by another applicant bearing the signature of Mrs. D. M. Douglas. Of the 1160 resorts queried, 30 found they could not accommodate the Cohen family, but could accommodate the Douglas family.
