The association was officially opened for election on 24th January and fw^ ^ JfPr f --jzL'i 3Li l\^ were elected as the presidents of the association. The constitution would be sent to the Embassies in Vancouver and Ottawa for reference. It was hoped that the Chinese residents and the government . officers would co-operate to fight for the rights of the generalChinese community.P.3 (3) News from Montreal Early in 1914, there was the appeal to ask for an extension of absence from Canada during the war time period. (Originally, Chinese were allowed to leave for China for one year and given the freedom of re-entry within that year, but due to the lack of passenger ships operating between China and Canada, they asked for a longer time limit.) The Chinese Ambassador had discussed this case satisfactorily with the Minister of Internal Affairs on 15th January; however, the Provincial Government of B.C. was discontented with this case. Consequently, further agreement had to be made. More struggle on the part of the Chinese was inevitable
