The last Saturday of every month, the ghost town of Rowley (by Drumheller) opens up and hosts an all night pizza and beer fundraiser at the saloon. The “Hollywood of Alberta” (population of 6) has been a set for many western movies and can be rented out for special occasions. Bonus: Free popcorn and cheap Pilsner!

Racism and the British Columbia Consumers’ League, 1917

The racism of white activist women in early 20th Canada is by now widely known.  (See Erika Dyck’s  Facing Eugenics, for example).  

White women in Consumers’ Leagues were no different.  In 1917, the “ladies” of the BC Consumers’ League loudly booed a fruit farmer for suggesting that “Oriental” employees were reliable.  

Fruit farmers, they said, should instead employ white women.  And so, the BC Consumers’ League started a drive to find “three thousand fruit pickers ‘to drive the Chinese out.’”

Article from: Vancouver Sun, March 28, 1917, p. 9.

To learn more about racism toward Chinese people in early 20th century British Columbia, check out these books by Patricia Roy and Timothy Stanley.
