See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Canadian Labor Congress urged the Government here today to enact legislation that would stamp out hate propaganda that incites to violence against racial or ethnic groups. In a special brief submitted to Minister of Justice Guy Favreau, the CLC also called for legislation that would require authors, publishers, distributors and printers of certain materials sent through the mails to identify themselves clearly in print.

The brief complained that Canadians have been subjected in recent months “to a barrage of anti-Semitic and anti-Negro literature, ” some of it distributed through the mails.
