Gouzenko a Liar

Gouzenko a Liar

Another retraction was forced by sponsors of the Canadian Aid to Russia Fund, who had been accused by the Russian renegade Igor Gouzenko of having used aid funds to finance "Russian agents" in Canada.

Four of the Canadian Aid officials cited acknowledgements by Canadian Ambassador in Moscow. Mr. Dana Wilgress, accounting for every cent of the money collected.

This evidence produced from Canada's leading newspaper, the "Toronto Star," an admission that Gouzenko was a liar. "This episode proves that Gouzenko's unsupported testimony has no value," said the "Star." But it is precisely on Gouzenko's unsupported testimony that the Royal Commission based its report.

According to the Canadian Bar Association it reached the conclusion by violating all the established rules of legal procedure.
