THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Canadian Recants Written Slur of Jews

TORONTO (JTA) — The
Canadian Bnai Brith
League for Human Rights
has recommended that no
action be taken against a
transportation company
president who made slur-
ring anti-Jewish remarks
against three Jewish-owned
toy firms and then offered
apologies and made cash
donations to six Jewish
organizations "to foster bet-
ter relations between the
Jewish faith and other reli-
gions in Canada."
Robert Stanley, president
of the Howell Transport
Canada Corp. of Toronto,
did not deny sending a letter
to eight other transport
firms in which he made dis-
paraging remarks about the
practices of the three firms.
He suggested they cheated
on weights and identified
them with people "who hold
their church services on
Saturday and wear funny
little hats."
The three toy firms are

In his letter to Gottfried,
Stanley wrote that he
apologized "for comments
made about you" and that "I
wish to express my deep re-
gret for any embarrassment
caused to you. I deeply re-
gret these disparaging re-
marks were ever made. It is
clear that the shock and
dismay that I expect you
feel must be very painful
indeed." He said his re-
marks were "inexcusable
and ill-considered."

Greenfield made public

Canadian Human Rights
Commission, the Ontario
Human Rights Commis-
sion and the Quebec

Stanley wrote a lengthy
and less ambiguous defense
to Gottfried, apologizing to
him. Stanley also sent a
$1,000 contribution to each
of six Jewish charities, and
to one interfaith cause, also
for $1,000.

H O

owned by Stanley Gottfried
of Toronto who took the
problem to the Canadian
Jewish Congress which
complained to the Ontario
Human Rights Commis-'
sion, which enforces a code
forbidding religious bias in
business.
Ted Greenfield, past
chairman of the Human
Rights League, said the
racist remarks were in a
letter dated April 15 and
directed against
Gottfried, president of
Gottfried Importing Co.
Stanley's initial reaction
to the complains of bias was
a written apology in which
he suggested his letter had
been "misunderstood" and
had not been intended to
give offense. Subsequently,
when news about the letter
spread through Toronto and
Montreal and Stanley's firm
began to get cancellations of
contracts reportedly worth
more than $500,000, Stan-
ley revised his response.

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
Jewish federations in the
United States have agreed
to a new funding arrange-
ment with the United
Jewish Appeal (UJA) that
will mean more cash and
less loans going to the
Jewish Agency for projects
in Israel.
Local Jewish
com-
munities will now give the
UJA a percentage of the
money actually collected,
rather than the contribu-
tions pledged. In the past,
when contributors did not
honor their pledges, the
Jewish Agency was forced
to take out loans to finance
its activities, according to
the agency treasurer Akiva
Lewinsky.

Lower Support

TEL AVIV (ZINS) —
Eliyahu Salpeter, -writing
in Haaretz, quotes the Gal-
lup. Poll for the following:
Some 65 percent of the
American people would
support direct military in-
tervention by the United
States if the Soviet Union
attacked Western Europe;
51 percent supported inter-
vention if Japan were at-
tacked; 31 percent favored
action for Poland; and only
30 percent supported U.S.
intervention if the Soviet
Union attacked Israel:

sion, in which the Human
Rights League recom-
mended the case be
dropped, as Gottfried
had asked.
Greenfield said the
League considered Stan-
ley's letter of apology and
his contributions as "recog-
nition" by Stanley of the
gravity of his action, but he
added the League does not
feel that financial compen-
sation in any way lessened
the damage caused by Stan-
ley's biased action.
