Twenty thousand men and women participated in a huge mass meeting, preceded by a parade, in protest against the outrages against Jews in Palestine.

Seven thousand dollars was collected for the Palestine Emergency Fund. Relief committees are being formed throughout Canada to receive contributions to the Fund.

In addresses by Mayor McBride of Toronto and other speakers, the laxity of the Palestine administration was assailed. Resolutions similar in tenor to those of the New York meeting were adopted.
