After several months of investigation and discussion, the following 4 proposals were drawn:a) To request the Canadian government to abolish the current immigration laws concerning Chinese immigrants.b) Except for the forbidden workers ( , ), the rest should be allowed to come to Canada. Moreover, those holding Canadian passports should be given free entry.c) All overseas Chinese should receive equal treatment with those of other foreign countries. The same kind of priority should begranted to the Chinese immigrants also.d) All overseas Chinese should have the right to stay in Canada whether or not he had received the receipt for head tax or not. Also, those who had gone back to China and had not yet passed the time limit should be allowed freedom of entry back into Canada.3.

The Chinese workers of a pool room had agreed to donate their one day'ssalary to Hospital.5. News from Victoria:A continuation of Ambassador Chau's talk. He said that the Canadians always complained about the tremendous influx of Chinese immigrants and how the Canadians were being exploited by the. However, from what he could observe after his visit to China, there was great improvement in Commerce, thus in the future, there would surely be less Chinese emigration. Another thing was that Canadian goods had been very popular in the Chinese market. All these showed that the Chinese, were by no means exploiting the Canadians. As for the drug question, Ambassador Chau pointed out that the Chinese should not be blamed for its prevalence in Canada. The whites should in fact be condemned since it was they who introduced opium into China
