Banned!

From New International, Vol.1 No.2, August 1934, p.58.
Transcribed & marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for ETOL.

 

ENCLOSED in a letter from the Department of National Revenue of Canada, addressed to the publishers of The New International to inform them that our periodical has been banned in that country, is the following Memorandum of the Customs Division of the department, dated Ottawa, August 7, 1934, and addressed to “Collectors of Customs and Excise” throughout the Dominion:

Prohibited Publications

Referring to Memorandum No.1515-B, you are advised that the following publications are prohibited importation into Canada under the provisions of Section 13 and Item 1201, Schedule ‘C’ of the Customs Tariff, viz:–

The New International, Published monthly by the New International Publishing Association, New York, USA.

The Ukrainian Daily News, A newspaper published in the Ukrainian language by the Robitnyk Publishing and Printing Co. Inc., 17 East 3rd St., New York, USA

  

Chas. P. Blair
Ass’t. Commissioner of Customs

The publishers of The New International are determined to make every effort to obtain a revocation of the order of the Canadian Customs authorities, so that the review, which to our knowledge, is now being permitted legal entry into every other part of the British Empire, may be available to Canadian readers. A Canadian attorney has been advised of the prohibition order and the next necessary measures are now being taken.
