Canadian Nazi Leader to Face Trial; Charged with Causing Disturbance

William John Beattie, self-styled leader of the Canadian Nazi Party, was ordered today to appear for trial September 1 for his part in a mob scene at a Nazi rally in Allan Gardens May 30. His trial on a charge of causing a disturbance was to be held today, but he claimed he was not ready with his defense.

“New persons have come forth to testify on my behalf and I was hoping I would be given just consideration to bring them to court,” he told Magistrate S. Tupper Bigelow.
