An anti-Semitic allegation surfaced against a candidate in the heated race for the leadership of Canada’s official opposition party. At a rally for Stockwell Day, a Christian fundamentalist from Alberta, someone asked whether he had once “taught at a school where Jews were described as children of the devil.” Although Day quickly denied the allegation, his main opponent, Preston Manning, commented that such “slip-ups” could be damaging to the Canadian Alliance Party.
