The Chinese times
The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
June 6P.3 1) Ambassador Yeung made an announcement on June 1 that the Canadian government would like to administer sudden inspection of the statement of exemption from enlistmmnt from any Canadian resident so that no one could escape from being drafted. Those who could not produce the statements would be fined not more than $50 or 1 month in prison in addition to being officially drafted. Residents of foreign nationalities would be exempt from enlistment, but they had to produce either an identification from the Embassy or a passport from their native country. All would be subject to sudden inspection starting June 1. Ambassador Yeung thought that it would be too hasty to issue the Embassy identifi- cation card to the Chinese, so he pleaded to extend the inspection to August 1, and in order to be more convenient to the Chinese in isolated areas, he negotiated with the Canadian government to have the Head Tax certificate as substitute for the Embassy identification card. For those who like to apply for the Embassy identification card, they could come to the Embassy after June 15.In addition, Ambassador Yeung announced that the registration for all Canadian residents over the age of 16 before June 22 had nothing to do with the en- listment of soldiers. He hoped the Chinese residents would be get into a panic
