April 17. Thurs.P.2 1. The in Vancouver was in favourof the restrictive law that prohibited Chinese from employing female whites. The Association asserted that they had the right to educate, train and improve the employees of the badly disciplined Chinese restaurants. They thought that youngsters might learn evil habits, such as smoking opium, or taking cocaine, from the Chinese. Some even suggested having total exclusion of Chinese from Canada.P.3 2. A Canadian Commercial affair inspector had returned to Canadaafter 15 years of research in China. He commented on the issue of prohibiting Chinese workers from entering Canada. He asserted that the prohibition would not inter- fere with the commercial development of the 2 countries. However, the relaxation of Chinese entry would greatly influence economic conditions in China. He stated that most of the Chinese immigrants were only from Canton and they were only poor coolieswho had no contribution to the Canadian economy. Thus restricting them from gaining entry would not hinder the economic development of Canada. Mbreover, the friendship between the two countries was not endangered due to the fact that the Chinese immigrants were only minorities in the South.However, suggested that Canada should treat the Chinesestudents kindly because they would help the development of China in the future and in turn they would benefit future relationships between the two countries.3.
