The Chinese times
The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
December 10P3 1) Consul General Lim had sent an appeal to the B.C. Premier about the issueof the prohibition of the Chinese from employing female whites and Indians. The intention of MP , who brought up theproposal was to protectthe women in B.C. from drugs and evilness. However, her proposal had a dis- criminatory dffect.In Vancouver, where they was a mixture of so many ethnic groups, there would be inevitable differentiation; however, the people tended to get along with each other quite well. The Chinese, being the pioneers in Canada, a part of the Canadian civilization and so law-abiding, would certainly feel offended upon hearing the proposal which forbade them to employ white and Indian women. If the proposal was passed, the friendly relationship between China and Canada would be endangered. It was thus hoped that the par- liament would give a check to such restrictive proposals.
