Special Quebec Bicentenary
Ceremony to Honor Aaron Hart

A special ceremony in Trois
Rivieres, Quebec, home of the
first Jewish settler in Canada,
and the community which
elected the first Jew to the
Legislative Assembly, will
launch a year of celebration in
honor of the Bicentenary of
Canadian Jewry. The import-
ant function, under the joint
auspices of the City of Trois
Rivieres and the Canadian
Jewish Congress, will be held
on Labor Day, Sept. 7, at 4
p.m., and will highlight the
historic role of "Three Rivers"
- as a pioneer in the recognition
of democratic rights.
Aaron Hart, the first per-
manent Jewish settler in Can-
ada, who came with the British
army in 1759 and participated
in the capture of Montreal,
subsequently settled in Trois
Rivieres where he became an
active and respected member
of the community. Ezekiel
Hart, second son of Aaron
Hart, was elected member for
Trois Rivieres to the Legisla-
tive Assembly of Lower Can-
ada in 1807, but he was re-
fused the right to sit or vote
because he professed the Jew-
ish religion. In spite of this,
the City of Trois Rivieres re-
turned him as its member in
1808, and although Ezekiel
Hart never actually took his
seat in the House, he lived to
see an act passed in 1832,
granting Jews "the full rights
and privileges of all other sub-
jects of His Majesty King Wil-
liam IV." This legislation was
the first of its kind in the
British Commonwealth and was
not introduced in Great Britain
until 1859.

It is in honor of this demo-
cratic achievement that a
plaque, suitably inscribed in
French and English, will be
mounted in Champlain Park
facing Hart Street.

tion parties participated in a
tribute to the Jews of Canada
at a session of the Legislative
Assembly in connection with
the Bicentenary celebration of
Jewish settlement in Canada.
D. L. Campbell, leader of
the opposition, and R. Paulley,
house leader of the CCF, also
spoke on the Jewish contribu-
tion to the upbuilding of Can-
ada. Two Jewish members of
the Legislature, M. A. Gray
and D. Orlikow, responded.

Legislature Asks Cabinet
to Offer Anti-Bias Bill

The Provincial Legislature
unanimously adopted a resolu-
tion inviting the Manitoba gov-
ernment to introduce legisla-
tion barring discrimination in
provision of public accommoda-
tion, services and facilities be-
cause of race, creed, color, na-
tionality, ancestry or place of
origin of the applicant.
The resolution was intro-
duced by M. Baizley, Progres-
sive-Conservative member from
Osborne. It was welcomed by
M. A. Gray, a Jewish member
of the Legislature who has
sought civil rights legislation
for several years. He expressed
the hope that a "Bill of Rights
will follow this resolution in
the not too distant future." He
recalled the defeat of his bill
in the last session of the legis-
lature and reminded the house
that "it is the clear duty of a
democratic government to
enact legislation to do away
with the ill effects of the
prejudices that are being
held." He said adoption of a
Bill of Rights by Manitoba
would be "a great stimulant to
a Canadian Bill of Rights."
