Human Rights in Canada: An Historical Perspective

Equality and Justice - for Some

Ottawa, Canada
1920

The Dominion Elections Act recognizes that every eligible Canadian over 21 - male or female can vote in federal elections.

Unfortunately, this does not include Aboriginal peoples, Inuit or anyone barred from a provincial voters' list including Asians and Hindus.

It seems that in 1920, human rights are afforded only to Caucasian humans.
