George Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi, party, has been included in a list of undesirable persons who will not be allowed to enter Canada in the future.

The addition of Rockwell’s name to the list, which is circulated to all immigration officials, followed an incident last seek in which the American Nazi was evicted from a Montreal hotel as an “undesirable person” when he came to organize anti-Semitism in Canada. He flew back to Washington the same day.
