MONTREAL (Jun. 8)
Two Jewish candidates from Montreal won seats in the Quebec Provincial Parliament, according to the election results yesterday which gave the conservative National Union Party a 55 to 51-seat victory over the Liberal administration of Premier Lesage. The two Jews who won on the Liberal ticket were Harry Blank, who was reelected, and Victor Goldbloom.
At a press conference last night, Daniel Johnson, leader of the victorious National Union Party, said that his party had received 6 percent less of the popular vote than the Liberal Party, partly because of the “Jewish vote” in Montreal.
