Steinkopf Named to Manitoba Cabinet as Minister of Utilities


land B. Steinkopf, a 50-year-old
Winnipeg attorney and civic
leader, was sworn in as Provin-
cial Secretary and Minister of
Public Utilities in the Mani-
toba cabinet. This is the first
time a Jew has been named to
a cabinet in any Canadian pro-
vince other than Ontario.
Premier Duff Roblin said the
new Minister brought to his
post considerable business and

legal ability and a unique ad-
ministrative talent. As provin-
cial Minister, Steinkopf's juris-
diction includes the civil ser-
vice commission and the opera-
tions of the Queen's Printer and
the province's centralized pur-
chasing bureau.
The new minister served in
the Queen's Cameron Highland-
ers in World War II as a pri-
vate, finishing as a lieutenant
colonel in the Ordinance Corps.

He has been president and di-
rector of a wide variety of busi-
ness firms and a governor of
the Winnipeg YMHA and Win-
nipeg General Hospital. He has
served as Manitoba chairman of
Israel Bonds and Bar-Ilan Uni-
versity. He has been a co-chair-
man of the United Jewish Ap-
peal. His father, Max Stein-
kopf, came to Canada in 1889
and was the first Jewish at-
torney in Western Canada.

high rate, and to provide aid to related refugee programs.

ish candidate who was defeated
in Morocco's recent parliament-
ary elections appealed to the Su-
preme Moroccan Constitutional
Chamber to determine the valid-
ity of the election of another
Jewish candidate.
Meyer Toledano, the loser,
charged that Meyer Obadiah, the
winner, used the resources of
the Casablanca Jewish Commit-
tee, of which the latter is presi-
dent, in the election campaign.
Toledano charged that Obadiah
used propaganda in synagogues
and his authority in the Jewish
committee. The Constitutional
chamber will consider the ap-
peal but it was not expected that
Obadiah's election would be
