Subject: Morris Cantor Interviewer: Joe Murray Date: December 13, 2000 Interview Location: Ottawa, ON Length of Time: 63:15 LANGUAGE WARNING -Morris was born in Lithuania, his family is from a small town near Kovna. -in 1930 the family started to see more anti semitism and decided to immigrate to the US. He had 3 brothers living in South Africa and a brother and a sister living in the US. Morris and his brother and sister still living in Lithuania were sponsored by his family in Boston and immigrated. They could not get into the US so they came to Canada instead. -In June 1930 they arrived in Quebec City then came to Ottawa when Morris was 12 and a half years old. -In Ottawa Morris’s sister worked stringing pearls and his father worked at a wholesale market in the Byward Market. -Morris attended York Street Public School for 2 years and he discusses skipping grades and his favorite teacher Mr. Cook. -Morris left school to work with his father. He worked as a door to door fruit peddler after his father bought a horse and wagon. He discusses the prices he was selling at and how drastically prices have changed. -Morris’s brother went to Montreal for a short time to learn the butcher business and when he returned they opened a butcher store in the Byward Market. -he discusses meat prices and customer interactions, he particularly remembers the generosity of a customer who gave him new clothes in exchange for meat. -In 1936 the brothers bought a new building and moved the butcher into a bigger space. -Morris was a member of the Machzikei Hadas when it was at its Murray Street location. He speaks on his memories of the older members of the congregation and Kaddish. -In 1942 he enlisted in the Royal Candian Airforce. He worked very hard to be the best he could; he recalls shining his shoes until they looked like mirrors and sleeping on top of his made bed so it always looked neat. -Morris was promoted to Corporal where he began teaching students and eventually got made a Sergeant. He has fond memories of playing cards in the Sergeants mess hall and his colleagues drinking. -He recalls working on a base near the Alaskan Highway and selling his liquor to men working on the highway instead of drinking it himself. -He was discharged in 1945/1946 and he returned to Ottawa. -Morris went back to working at the butcher shop and met his wife Goldie Cantor. Morris and Goldie were married in June of 1946. -Morris speaks about how hard the work was in the butcher shop, he says he barely saw his children since he was always working. -He then speaks about a man in real estate coming into the shop and that is where he learnt of an auditorium that was for sale. He bought the auditorium and remodeled it. The auditorium was host to hockey games, skating clubs, wrestling matches, concerts, and midget (derogatory term) wrestling. -He discusses making deals with CBC to have tv broadcasts of events and business deals gone bad involving the auditorium. -Eventually the building was bought by the YMCA for $300,000 -Morris then touches on his family life. He had 3 daughters and one son; Elsa, Evelyn, Leslie, and Ian. Morris details each of their education and marriages. He is very proud of his children, their partners, and his grandchildren. -Joe Murray brings up rumours that Morris has a brother in South Africa who is involved in the diamond trade, Morris says these are false rumors and his brothers left South Africa some time ago. -Morris then discusses his Slaughterhouse; in 1959 he purchased a meat plant. His plant produced both beef and pork and twice a week had kosher slaughtering. He sold this plant in 1975. -Morris finishes by telling the story of when Elvis Presley performed at his auditorium and he got to meet him. He also talks about the times he had circuses with elephants in his auditorium. END OF TAPE

History Biographical
WELTMAN, Morris June 22, 1931 - December 21, 2021 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Morris Weltman with his family peacefully by his side at the Carleton Lodge in Ottawa, on December 21, 2021. Morris, in his 91st year, was the loving husband of Sandra Weltman for 58 years. Cherished father of Peter Weltman (Wendy Hillier) and Anna Weltman, both of Ottawa. Grandfather to Benjamin and Zoe. Dear son of the late Peter and Freyda Cogan Weltman, 'baby' brother of Tesse (late Abe Grosh) of Toronto, Shirley (Sam) Kleiman of Winnipeg, Harry (Sally) Weltman of Ottawa, and predeceased by his brother, Isadore Weltman of Ottawa. Also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. After spending some years living in Winnipeg and enjoying being around many beloved nieces and nephews, Morris moved back to Ottawa and worked with his family at their fruit store on the Bytown Market (downtown Ottawa). The fruit and vegetable business later blossomed into the beloved "Top Banana" chain of produce stores. The company expanded around the Ottawa-Gatineau region and the stores became popular landmarks in the community. Morris was a passionate and skilled golfer, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine while walking the courses at the Rideau View and Ottawa Hunt golf clubs. A private graveside service will be held at Jewish Memorial Gardens, 2692 Bank Street, Ottawa on December 23, 2021 at 11a.m. A livestream of the service may be viewed on the website of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry at www.hpmcgarry.ca. Special thanks go to the Queensway Carleton Hospital and to Carleton Lodge for the wonderful care given to Morris. Donations to the Alzheimer Society please in lieu of flowers.Condolences/Tributes/Donations Hulse, Playfair & McGarry www.hpmcgarry.ca 613-233-1143

History Biographical
Goldie Cantor was born in Ottawa at 16 Byward Market upstairs over her parent's store (Jacob and Leah Rivers) in 1924. She attended York Street School followed by Lisgar Collegiate where she graduated in 1943. She worked in her parents fruit store and married Morris Cantor in 1946. They were married at Adath Jeshurun Synagogue and their reception was in the Talmud Torah Hall, George Street. Morris Cantor was born in Lithuania in 1917, son of Hyman and Ida Cantor. He arrived in Ottawa with his family in 1929. A Boston relative sponsored the Cantor family. Since the United States quota was closed at that time, the Cantors, knowing other families from Lithuania were then in Ottawa, decided on settling in Ottawa. Morris went to York Street School for two years only but then was required to work. He enlisted in World War II for the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943 and was posted to the Yukon. He was an Athletic Director and had the rank of Sergeant. Goldie and Morris met when he was home on leave. When he married in 1946, he was a member of Cantor’s Kosher Meat Market, 470 Patrick Street. After the war, he returned to the butcher shop and worked with his brother Ben (Benes). Morris, with the support of some of his brothers and sisters, purchased the Auditorium around 1956 and brought in entertainment as well as providing ice for hockey. Both Goldie and Morris were active participants in the Ottawa Jewish community. They had three girls; Elsa, Evelyn and Leslie.
