The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
June 22 P2 1) (student of UBC) published an article on the Province whichwas primarily concerned with the Chinese protest against the immigration law.He stressed that the Chinese would surely boycott Britan and Canada iftheir appeal was disregarded. P3 2) A Chinese was killed by a Canadian in a car accident. His father attemptedto claim $10,000 compensation, however, the judge called off the casebecause of insufficient evidence. 3) A Chinese committed the drug offence. 4)2 Chinese were fined $10 each for working on Sunday.P.3 5) A continuation of the proposals to revise the restrictive immigration law: #18. All Chinese legal immigrations who had not violated term #8 could stay in Canada upon registration. For those who had left Canada after regist- ration could reregister when they came back provided that they told the immigration officer that they would return before they left Canada. #24. The original term was that those Chinese immigrants who had re- gistered to go out of Canada were given 2 years of absence only after which the immigration officer could decide whether he could reenter or not. The suggested revision was that upon any detention by the immigration of- ficer, the Chinese immigrant should be given 48 hours to appeal to the head immigration officer.#26. To abolish the term that permitted the police to arrest suspicious Chinese without warrant and also the term that stated that those Chinese immigrants who had violated the previous immigration law should be deported. #27. The term that demanded head tax payment should not ppply to those legal immigrants who had previously been exempt from such payment.P3 6) News from the Chinese representative committee in Ottawa The extraordinary meeting for discussing the immigration law would be postponed because government party leader was sick. It was reported that thegovernment would take strong action against the false merchants and students. This was strongly advocated by &(immigration officer in B.C.) who pointed out that they were familiar with the Chinese way of getting into Canada, namely by pretending to be merchants and students
