Losses Sustained by the Japanese Population of Vancouver, B.C. on the occasion of the riots in that city in September, 1907
[Japan] Very scarce publication on the so-called Anti-Oriental Riots that occurred from September 7-9, 1907 when generally White, anti-Asian residents believed Japanese, Chinese, and other immigrants were taking "their" jobs. The Deputy Minister of Labour, W[illliam] L[yon] Mackenzie King, C.M.G. (later Prime Miniser of Canada for a total of 21 years) was appointed as Commissioner to investigate the riots. Although the riots led to bans on further Japanese and Chinese immigration, some compensation was paid to those who had had businesses and property damaged.
