A HARPER'S WEEKLY correspondent filed this report which serves as an eye-witness account to the 1907 anti-Asian riots that flared up in the Canadian city of Vancouver, British Columbia. The riot triggered numerous 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 racist tension 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.
