Extract from an open letter by the Mayor of Winnipeg, Manitoba
Free Press, June 23, 1919.
Any foreigners who make any threats of any kind or in
any way intimidate or worry would-be workers in the
slightest degree can expect immediate deportation to
Russia or wherever they come from. We intend to purge
the city of any lawless element and prosecute to the full
rigour of the law. On the other hand, all law-abiding
citizens can feel free to go about their business in
the full realization that British law will protect them
to the limit. No further open-air meetings, either in
parks, streets or public places, will be permitted until
GOD SAVE THE KING!
Charles F. Gray, Mayor
