B’nai Brith Canada called for the resignation of an aboriginal leader who made anti-Jewish comments. Terrance Nelson, chief of Manitoba’s Roseau River Anishinabe Reserve, said media coverage of the trial of David Ahenakew, a former aboriginal leader being tried for his controversial comments against Jews, “will surely cause natives to hate Jews even more than some of them do now, and what Jews fear the most — active promotion of hatred against Jews in Canada — will only rise dramatically among natives as they make a martyr out of an old man.” Nelson made his comments to the Winnipeg Free Press.
