Immigration Restrictions in Canada (The Atlanta Georgian, 1917)

In 1917 an American newspaper correspondent from THE ATLANTA GEORGIAN reported that the dominion of Canada, heeding the protests of it's most impoverished citizens, moved to restrict the flow of the immigrants to their shores:

"The commissioners say that in Canada, as in Australia, there is a strong current of opposition to immigration as it is now carried on, particularly among the wage earners in the cities. It is recognized that the development of the land is of prime consideration and that the tide of immigration into the cities has created a surplus, whereas the rural communities have suffered."

 

The Rebelion of White Canada (Harper's Weekly, 1907)

The attached article was written by an eye-witness to the 1907 anti-Asian riots that flared up in the Canadian city of Vancouver, British Columbia, resulting in numerous assorted acts of mob-violence and arson targeting the Asian community of that city. The widespread Asian migration to the Dominion of Canada was a result of the diplomatic agreements between Japan and Great Britain (Anglo-Japanese Alliance, 19021922) resulting in a tremendous amount of anti-Asian hysteria among Canadian Whites.

"If Vancouver had her choice about it, England would have no friends at all east of the Suez Canal. It is a far cry for a city of land to carry her troubles half-way around the world and back again, but Vancouver has had a riot, and if you are to believe popular sentiment, fears not who knows about it."

Today, the surname "Li" is the most common last name in Canada.

The Yellow Peril and White Canada (Review of Reviews, 1910)

The Canadians of British Columbia were just as uncomfortable with Asian immigration as their American neighbors on the west coast. This article discusses the Canadian Prime Minister, at the time, Sir Wilfred Laurier, and what he planned to do about "Asiatic immigration", such as placing a "head tax" on each Asian who migrated. The growth of the Indian Hindu population along the Canadian West Coast is also mentioned

 

Anti-Asian Riots in Vancouver (Harper's Weekly, 1907)

"The cheap yellow and brown men have driven out the Whites and Indians from the salmon fisheries and canneries, the farms and the mines."

-So reported the the HARPER'S WEEKLY correspondent in the attached article that documented the 1907 anti-Asian race riots in Vancouver, British Columbia. Having visited San Francisco some time earlier, the journalist mused that similar mob-violence will result in the American West if the Federal Government does not take steps to soothe the racial tensions in some manner.

 

A Plan to Make Chinese Canadians (Literary Digest, 1929)

A brief article from an American magazine that clearly explained the mounting frustrations within 1920s Canada concerning the influx of Chinese immigrants to that country.

"The story of Chinese immigration reveals the fact that the early efforts to reduce the number of these immigrants resulted in the imposition of a head tax. The amount of this tax was increased from year to year until it reached $500.00..."

Today, the Chinese Canadian population is numbered 1,216,565 and is recognized as the largest of the eight ethnic groups that make up the Asian-Canadian community.
