      Bartlett Wanless was arrested at Fort Saskatchewan on 8 Dec 1940, tried in Edmonton, and sentenced to 5 months in jail or $150 for passing out Jehovah's Witnesses flyers called "End of Nazism". At the time, the Jehovah's Witnesses were an illegal organization; they were thought to be an instrument of Hitler's.
