Storyboard Text

  • I can not believe that we are finally here!
  • Me too!
  • This does not seem right.
  • It is so cold and we have nothing to keep us warm.
  • The Chinese immigrants came to Canada in hope for a better life. During the time back in China there was a war going on. The Chinese were hoping their new job would help them support their families back hope to keep them safe and happy.
  • AHHHHHHH!!!!
  • As the Chinese began to work on the railway they started to realized this was not what they were expecting. The job was much more dangerous than what they had been told and some of the promises made to them were not followed through with.
  • Nice work.
  • Here.
  • The Chinese were not prepared for the winter since back in China the weather was much nicer. Therefore, the Chinese did not expect it to get very cold in Canada. They were not provided with the proper clothing and equipment by the company so they mainly worked in light clothing and slippers.
  • Will I ever get to go home again?
  • The job became more and more difficult and dangerous. 1 in 4 Chinese worker would die every mile. As the worker would climb down the sharp rock with a rope to insert the dynamite their rope would begin to tear against the ruff rocks leading to their death
  • The Chinese workers did way more work than the European workers. The Chinese also worked on the more dangerous parts of the railway while the European workers got the more the flat lands. However, the Chinese workers were still paid less.
  • The Chinese felt hopeless, they had nobody but each other. Their families were all back home and they were lonely. They were promised a ticket back home, but were not told that they had to pay for themselves. On there very low wadges it was very hard to go back home.
