Montreal Has Non-sectarian Anti-nazi Unit

Download PDF for this date

A Canadian Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League is in the process of formation here, it was announced today. Well-known non-Jews, including Howard Rusk, Professor J. S. Farthing and George Mooney are cooperating in the foundation of the new organization.

Letters were dispatched to twelve hundred Jewish manufacturers and storekeepers in Montreal asking them to abstain from buying or selling German goods. About one-third have already pledged themselves to heed the boycott.

At the same time, a movement has been set on foot to have a law passed making it mandatory for the country of origin to be marked on all goods entering Canada. The Canadian Manufacturers Association and the Trade and Labor Congress have already endorsed the proposed law, it was reported to the Canadian Jewish Congress.
