Carr stated: "Our doors in the U.S. are open to Canadian Klansmen who operate their own Klans as Canadian organizations. our doors are closed to any group that follow banished Americans who are over here.

Klankraft is essential to the real Canadian gentlemen to-day, and to this and worth0while activities should be undertaken.
