Canadian Nazi Renounces Doctrines of Hatred; Apologizes to Jews

David Stanley, youthful self-styled Nazi leader and racist, renounced Nazism at a press conference here and apologized for his vicious hate literature campaign against Canadian Jewry. He told newsmen that it was “not an easy decision for me to make. I came to the conclusion that my ideas are false.”

He declared: “My ideas were not rational, or logical, they were based on twisted emotion; they were negative and destructive, and I am sick of it.” He partly blamed the newspaper s and the Government for the attention his anti-Semitic and neo- Nazi activities have received, adding that, if it had not been for the publicity, “I would have quit years ago.”
