He suggested that July 1 was not a suitable date, becuase of the following reasons:a. The 43 restrictive immigration laws were officialy enforced on June 30.b. There was the fear that some Chinese with weak will might participate in various celebrations held on Dominion Day. If that happened, the Canadians would certainly laugh at the non-unity of the Chinese.c. Since July 1 was a national holiday during which most people would take a rest, any actions taken by the Chinese at that day would not be too eff- ective. If another day was chosen, more attention would certainly be drawn from the general public.- CBA (VICTORIA) , ad received support for observing July 1 as the Chinese Humiliation Day from , CKT IN ,and Revelstoke.- CBA had decided that no date change should be made for the Chinese Hum- iliation Day despite the letter of because thoroug h consid- eration and discussion had been made before the announcement was made
