Excerpt From Report By W L Mackenzie King, C M G., Deputy Minister Of Labour, Commissioner Appointed To Investigate Into The Losses Sustained By The Japanese Population Of Vancouver, B C On The Occasion Of The Riots In That City In September, 1907Mr Duncan Has Stated That The Japanese People Are Inclined To Regard The Feeling As The Result Of Agitation Of Persons Who Have Not Had At Heart The Maintenance Of Good Feeling Between Japan And Canada If, In That Remark, Mr Duncan Had Reference To The Particular Incident Which Occurred On That Night, I Think He Is Quite Right Certainly Those Who Were Responsible For That Unfortunate Occurrence Could Not Have Had At Heart The Interests Of This Country In The Matter Of The Maintenance Of Good Feeling Between Japan And Ourselves On The Other Hand, If The Feeling To Which Reference Has Been Made Relates To The Feeling Which Has Been Engendered Here In Consequence Of A Sudden And Great Increase In The Numbers Of Persons From The Orient, Then I Am Inclined To Think That It Would Hardly Be Fair To Say That The Persons Who Share That Feeling Are Not Necessarily Or Have Not Necessarily At Heart The Interests Both Of This Country And Of Japan A Feeling Against The Sudden In Ux, In Large Numbers Of Peoples From Other Parts Of The World Is One Thing, And Is Quite Compatible With A Desire To Main Tain The Friendliest Relations Between The Peoples Of Those Countries And Our Selves An Expression Of Opinion, Or Rather The Giving To That Feeling Expres Sion In The Form Of An Incident Such As We Have Been Forced To Consider Here, Is Quite A Different Thing, And The Two Should Be Kept Distinctly Apart.About The PublisherForgotten Books Publishes Hundreds Of Thousands Of Rare And Classic Books Find At Www.forgottenbooks.comThis Book Is A Reproduction Of An Important Historical Work Forgotten Books Uses State Of The Art Technology To Digitally Reconstruct The Work, Preserving The Original Format Whilst Repairing Imperfections Present In The Aged Copy In Rare Cases, An Imperfection In The Original, Such As A Blemish Or Missing Page, May Be Replicated In Our Edition We Do, However, Repair The Vast Majority Of Imperfections Successfully Any Imperfections That Remain Are Intentionally Left To Preserve The State Of Such Historical Works.
