The Chinese times
The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
March 28. SaturdayP.3 1. The Vancouver Chinese Consulate announced on March 29 that the C.P.O.S. company was discontent with the Chinese who crowded around the pier whenever there were ships arriving from the East. The Company asserted that many Chinese were just on-lookers who were obstructive to the loading and unloading. It was thus hoped that Chinese onlookers could get away from the pier when there were ships arriving and those who really wanted to meet the related passengers could wait at the immigration office instead of standing around the pier area.2. The Public Health department had decided to send an inspection team to investigate the hygienic problem in Chinatown on March 31. It was reported that Chinatown was a breeding ground for disease and influenza; the rate of T.B. was highest in Chinatown; also the death rate was twice as high in Chinatown as in other districts.3. The United Returning Soldiers Association had a meeting on March 27 to discuss the issue of employing East Asian workers. There was the proposal to have all the automobile companies dismiss all the foreigners in order to replace them with the returning soldiers. A seven man committee was thus set up to negotiate with C.P.R. and other automobile companies.4. News from Victoria:The minister of Agriculture announced a new regulation on March 27.
