When the Chinese were first banned from voting in 1872, they formed the majority of voters in some electoral districts. Cities such as Vancouver and Victoria also had rules against using taxpayers' money to hire Chinese workers.

Saskatchewan was the other province that did not allow Chinese to vote in its ...

尽管华人是某些选区的主要(多数)选民,1872年华人在加拿大首次被禁止参加投票。温哥华市和维多利亚市制订政策禁止使用纳税人的钱来雇佣华裔职工。萨省也不容许华人参加投票。

1902

Cunningham and A.G. for B.C. v. Tomey Homma and A.G. for Canada [1903] A.C. 151 unsuccessfully challenges the lack of suffrage for Chinese, Japanese, and Indian people in B.C.

1902年华人在B.C.省没有政治选举权。

The 1903 decision of the highest court of appeal for Canada affirmed the power of the provinces to restrict voting eligibility on the basis of race. ... Election Act that

disqualified Japanese Canadians from the vote, along with First Nations, and Chinese Canadians (women were also excluded from the vote).

1903年加拿大最高法院确定各省有权根据种族限制投票资格。选举法明文规定华裔加拿大人没有资格参加投票。

1908

Municipal Elections Act S.B.C. 1908 c. 14 s. 13(1) - No Chinese, Japanese, or other "Asiatic" or Indian person is entitled to vote in any municipal election in B.C.

1908年B.C.市政选举法明文规定华人在B.C.不能参加任何市政选举投票。

1909

Saskatchewan denies the right to vote in provincial elections to Chinese people - R.S.S. 1909, c.3 s.11

1909年萨省拒绝华人参加省选投票。

In 1920, only one province – British Columbia – discriminated against large numbers of potential voters on the basis of race. British Columbia excluded people of Japanese and Chinese origin, as well as "Hindus" – a description applied to anyone from the Indian subcontinent who was not of Anglo-Saxon ...

1920年B.C.省是加拿大唯一一个省份根据种族限制投票权,华裔被排除在投票选举之外。

1939

Under the Provincial Elections Act, S.B.C. 1939, c.16 s. 5, Chinese, Japanese, Hindu or Indian persons are denied the right to vote in provincial elections in B.C. 1940

1939年B.C.省选举法明文规定不容许华人参加1940年的省选投票。

Finally, in 1947 the exclusion act was repealed and Chinese Canadians were given the right to vote in federal elections. Ten years later, in 1957, Douglas Jung was the first Chinese Canadian elected to the House of Commons. However not until 1967 were the Chinese given the same immigration rights as any other group ...

直到1947年华裔加拿大人才容许参加联邦选举投票。十年之后,即1957年,第一位华裔加拿大人郑天华(Douglas Jung)被选为加拿大下议院联邦议员。但是直到1967年,华人才和其他族群一样拥有同等移民权。

纵观加拿大历史,华人的选举投票权来之不易,它代表的是华人的尊严、华人平等的权利、华人参政的权利,我们应该珍惜这一神圣的权利,充分利用它来维护华人的权益,提高华人的地位,为建设美好富强的加拿大,显示华人不可忽视的力量,作出华人应有的贡献!
