Bill to Outlaw Discrimination Presented in Manitoba for 11th Year

March 13, 1952
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A “Bill of Rights” which would outlaw racial and religious discrimination in the province has been introduced in the Manitoba Legislature by M.A. Gray for the eleventh successive year.

The measure is given little chance of passage since the majority in the legislature in past years has argued that discrimination must be fought by education rather than legislation. The government, however, has introduced a measure prohibiting restrictive covenants in real estate sales.
