Lecture recap:
Main technique of domination land control
Different minority groups had different things to do (head tax after railroad) different
opportunities for majority
Created racial hierarchy through economic marginalization
$500 back then = a house head tax
“Pig house” placed all Chinese immigrants when 1st arrived, screening, look for lice, can
get out faster if bribe guards
In legislation, there is no Chinese
If Chinese left for more than 2 years, can’t return
Can’t vote, can’t enter city buildings (Chinatown)
Can’t stop during journeys, or else can’t come
Inability to adapt to Northern weather
Point system, male’s priority
Restricted covenants can’t sell property to certain people, specifically Jews
Wolfe v. Noble trying to buy land from Wolfe, can’t buy from Jew blood
Balancing of rights, more protection if entrenched, but at this time not entrenched
Switching from overt to covert
Expropriation gov’t can take away land from you, law says must give fair value, slums =
law $
Chinese Canadians tried to get reparations

Modern day equivalence relates to our borders, who can come & go with ease or difficulty
oPhenomenon: “FWA/FWM” fly while Arab/Muslim, racialize our airlines

any age
Racialized our borders, streets, roads
Globalized world int’l trade & bus need to travel
oNo fly list = harassment at borders
oNot really Canadian & othered
oUnsure if its Canadian or US list used, no info on it or where it came from
