Until the 1940s, Jews were banned from the professions in Canada. Not completely banned – that would be unseemly. But universities like McGill had quotas.
And once those few Jewish students graduated, they were blacklisted by many law firms and hospitals. It’s the reason why so many cities have Mount Sinai hospitals today. Those are the hospitals the Jewish doctors themselves set up, when the establishment wouldn’t hire them.
That was so long ago, wasn’t it?
