From 1880 to 1885, 15,000 Chinese workers came to British Columbia to build the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway), and hopefully start a family in this new land.
After the railway was complete, the workers wanted to bring their families over to Canada
But the Canadian government had different plans...
They announced a head tax on Chinese immigrants of $50, (what is now worth around $1200)
Than they raised it to $100...
After It was raised to $500, some workers lost hope of their family coming to Canada, as they couldn't pay the head tax. Out of the 46,000 Chinese in Canada, only about 3,000 were woman
Now, in 2018, many Chinese people don't call July 1st Canada Day, But National Humiliation Day, as they were the only people exluded from imigrating to Canada.
