Canadian Mayor Leads in Walkout from ‘seminar’ of Anti-semitic Group

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Mayor Leonard C. Jones, Jr., of Moncton, N.B.–a city in the Maritime Provinces of Canada–led 15 other persons in walking out of a “seminar” he characterized as anti-Semitic, and sent telegrams to leaders of the Dominion Government as well as to top officials of the New Brunswick provincial government, calling for an investigation of the so-called Christian Action Movement and its publications.

The incident occurred when three leaders of the Christian Action Movement opened the first of a series of three scheduled meetings here. After Mayor Jones and the 15 others walked out, the “seminars” were canceled. According to Mayor Jones, the movement distributes anti-Semitic articles. Two of the movement’s leaders, Eric A. Butler and Ron Gostick, also distribute the notorious anti-Semitic canard, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, ” Mayor Jones said.
