Summary "In this companion volume to A White Man's Province and The Oriental Question, Patricia Roy examines the climax of antipathy to Asians in Canada: the removal of all Japanese Canadians from the B.C. coast in 1942. Their free return was not allowed until 1949. Yet the war also brought increased respect for Chinese Canadians: they were enfranchised in 1947 and the federal government softened its ban on Chinese immigration."--Jacket
