Canadian Human Rights Commission Spreads Lies and Anti-White Guilt
The passage below is from a document Human Rights in Canada: A Historical Perspective that is on the website of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. It contains outright historical lies and is nothing but the usual anti-White guilt mongering politically correct poison. Sadly, the Canadian Majority has to pay for this.
Even the title of this section reveals anti-White bias: “the plight of immigrants” Really? These people were not kidnapped or press ganged. They eagerly and willingly came to Canada to seek a new life and opportunity in a land that offered them a chance and, not like today, a handout,
The article states: “Immigration is funnelled to the West in order to settle and farm the wide tracts of Prairie land. The profile of the preferred immigrant is white and British; as stated by Minister Clifford Sifton, “stalwart peasants in sheepskin coats“. If British immigrants are not available, other white immigrants will do. White immigrants from Eastern Europe are reluctantly accepted in large numbers.” Outright lies. In fact, English settlers were most decidely not wanted in Western Canada where they were widely seen as effete and dilettantes. This mendacious piece of White bashing reworks Minister of the Interior Clifford Sifton’s great comment about Ukrainians — “stalwart peasants in sheepskin coats” — so that it seems to refer to the English! In this stunning misdirection, the author distorts the fact that Sifton was praising and welcoming the Ukrainians.http://www.chrc-ccdp.ca/en/getBriefed/1900/immigrants.aspSee More
The article then trots out the usual discrimination smear: “Originally, male Chinese labourers were allowed into Canada to work for low wages in British Columbia’s gold mines and on the trans-Canada railroad. They sent most of their earnings back to China to help support their families. Chinese workers will accept lower wages than white workers.” Yet, the Chinese continued to pour into Canada, despite the low wages. They saw Canada offering desirable advantages and opportunities. Indeed, early Chinese called Canada Gum Shan or “Gold Mountain.” Wikipedia notes: “British Columbia came to be referred to as “Gold Mountain” following the discovery of gold in the Fraser Canyon in the 1850s and the spread of Chinese settlers in British Columbia (which they also referred to as “The Colonies of T’ang” i.e. China.” This latter sentence suggests that the European population of British Columbia, then quite sparse, had every reason to fear the Oriental influx.
One sentence — that’s all there is in “Organized Hate” — labels any opposition to the mass Asiatic invasion as “hate” : “The San Francisco-based Asiatic Exclusion League, dedicated to preventing Asian immigration to America, opens up a number of new chapters in Canadian cities such as Vancouver. Victoria has its own Anti-Chinese Association.” So, any effort to prevent one’s homeland from being radically changed is “hate.” White suicide is good; efforts to preserve the European character of one’s country are bad, no “hate”! This passage clearly demonstrates the truth that “anti-racism” is a fraud and is really anti-White.

The Plight of Immigrants
From 1867-1891, Canada was open for business, from an immigrant’s point of view. There weren’t many restrictions on who could enter the country, except for a head tax on Chinese immigrants, which was introduced in 1885. Eastern and Central Canada was the destination of choice, with British Columbia attracting many people from Asia.
By 1900, Minister of the Interior Clifford Sifton’s immigration policy is more restrictive.
Immigration is funnelled to the West in order to settle and farm the wide tracts of Prairie land. The profile of the preferred immigrant is white and British; as stated by Minister Clifford Sifton, “stalwart peasants in sheepskin coats”. If British immigrants are not available, other white immigrants will do. White immigrants from Eastern Europe are reluctantly accepted in large numbers, but black and Asian immigration is discouraged. Chinese immigrants are subject to a head tax, which requires every Chinese immigrant to pay a special $50 tax upon entering the country. Although relatively few in number – there are only 23,000 Chinese people in Canada in 1900 – arrivals from Asian countries are resented by the white majority. Originally, male Chinese labourers were allowed into Canada to work for low wages in British Columbia’s gold mines and on the trans-Canada railroad. They sent most of their earnings back to China to help support their families. Chinese workers will accept lower wages than white workers, and this causes resentment in the white population, especially when jobs are scarce. The populace generally perceives Chinese people to be immoral opium addicts. There is no official policy restricting Blacks from entering Canada, but the unofficial policy is to discourage it whenever possible. As a result, there are far fewer black immigrants than there may have been otherwise.
In 1899, Canada admitted 44,543 immigrants. Between 1894 and 1899, 154,613 immigrants came to call Canada home. In the five year period between 1991 and 1996, well over 1,000,000 immigrants will arrive. Between 1896 and 1907, Canada admitted 1.3 million European and American immigrants. Less than 900 Blacks were included in that number. In fact, the black population of Canada decreased from 50,000 in 1860 to 17,000 in 1911. In the lumber industry, Chinese workers are paid only between 25% and 50% of the wages paid to white labourers for the same work.
The San Francisco-based Asiatic Exclusion League, dedicated to preventing Asian immigration to America, opens up a number of new chapters in Canadian cities such as Vancouver. Victoria has its own Anti-Chinese Association.
