Ontario Court Sees
No Discrimination in
`Christian Principles'

TORONTO, (JTA)—A labor
union dedicated to the applica-
tion of Christian principles in
collective bargaining cannot be I
held to discriminate against any
person's creed, Chief Justice '
James C. McRuer, of the High_
Court of Ontario, ruled on an
appeael from a decision by the
Ontario Labor Relations Board,
which had refused to certify a
local affiliated with the Chris-
tian Labor Association of Can-
ada. The board's refusal was
based on the fact that members
of the local would have to
pledge to "uphold Christian
principles" in collective bar-
gaining.
Finding the Board's ruling
"erroneous," Chief Justice Mc-
Ruer stated in his opinion that
a "requirement to uphold
Christian ethical or social prin-
ciples, as taught in the Bible",
does not in itself constitute dis-
crimination on the grounds of
race, creed or color.

Ardon also received the 1954
arts award of the United Na-
tions Educational, Scientific and
Cultural Organization.
