Human Rights in Canada: An Historical Perspective

The Case of Quong Wing Revisited

Regina, Saskatchewan
1919

Remember Quong-Wing? He's the Asian-Canadian who broke the law by hiring two Caucasian women to work in his restaurant.

It turns out his stand wasn't entirely in vain. The Saskatchewan law that caused all the trouble - c. 17 SS. 1912 - is amended to delete reference to "Chinese".

The Chinese government lobbied the Saskatchewan government to make the change.
