The world’s worst Nazi spy: The German agent caught by Canada in a matter of hours
The first clue was the weird banknotes the stranger used to pay for his hotel bill.
To staff at the Carlisle hotel in New Carlisle, QC he presented oversized $1 bills that had not been in regular circulation since the First World War; the modern equivalent of handing over a fistful of pre-loonie $1 bills.
He said his name was William Branton of 323 Danforth Avenue in Toronto — an address now occupied by a women’s wear boutique. Having arrived into New Carlisle by bus that morning, he said he wanted to stop in for a quick bath and breakfast before continuing on to Montreal.
But the first bus into New Carlisle would not arrive for another three hours.
“We knew that he was a foreigner, by the way he spoke … he had kind of a guttural speech in the back of his throat,” Marguerite, the daughter of the Carlisle’s owner, would later tell journalist Dean Beeby for the 1996 book Cargo of Lies, an account of the spy fiasco.
In reality, the stranger had arrived in Quebec via the relatively unorthodox mode of a U-Boat.
That morning, the submarine U-518 had performed the nail-biting task of surfacing just off the well-patrolled waters of the Quebec coast and rowing the man to shore in an inflatable dinghy.
It was November 9, 1942, the same day that Canada would break off diplomatic relations with Vichy France, the rump German puppet state carved out of southeastern France.
New Carlisle’s most famous son, future Quebec premier René Lévesque, had only recently moved to Quebec City for a radio job. In another couple years, Lévesque would be sailing to Europe as a war correspondent.
And now, New Carlisle was the first stop for Werner von Janowski, a German officer sent on a mission of espionage to Canada.
