FOREIGN PROPAGANDA

LECTURE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA BY AUSTRIAN NAZI -QUESTION OF DOMINION INTERVENTION


On the orders of the day:


CON

Grote Stirling

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Yale):

I want to ask whether the attention of the government has been drawn to the activities of an Austrian nazi who has been delivering a lecture and showing a film in British Columbia. He arrived in the southern end of the Okanagan valley from the state of Washington and just across the border into Canada, and under the auspices of the Oliver and Osoyoos labour front he delivered this lecture and showed this film. It was greeted with cries of "Heil Hitler," "Sieg Hitler" and "Deutschland fiber Alles." He was to have delivered the same lecture just outside Kelowna in a German colony but was prevented by the provincial police, and the chief of police has received a threatening letter. May I ask whether in view of these activities the time has not arrived for some definite action to be taken, because public opinion is aroused.
