Gedolim trip 2006 - Part 4

A READER WRITES: 1. Rav Elyashiv Shlita, was consulted late last night, and asked if the two Gedolim should come. He said that given the potential for trouble and R' Shteinmans health, to rather cancel the trip. Although the Gerrer chassidim can come up with their own heavyweights, the Rebbe told everyone around him that this would be a tremendous Chillul Hashem. Also, the were no legal grounds for stopping the busses at the border, as they had legal permits to demonsrate. (no doubt, from the last Neturei Karta- Iranian meetings. Check out their website) 2. Many Montrealers jumped into their vans and are enroute to Toronto. To say that people are brokenhearted is an understatement. Please, do not in any way let this reflect badly on the community in Montreal. Even the Satmar kehilla (askanim) tried to stop this, however, too much Satmar political blood is involved and there is noone to speak to there.
