Iron Chink Machine Named for the Chinese Fishing Industry Laborers That it Displaced, Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site, Steveston, British Columbia

Iron Chink Machine Named for the Chinese Fishing Industry Laborers That it Displaced, Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site, Steveston, British Columbia

Just as there was in the U.S., the Chinese in Canada experienced their fair share of racism. I was a bit taken aback at seeing the name of this machine, “Iron Chink”, at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site. On one hand it is nice that they acknowledged this dark period of history in the Canadian fishing industry but at the same time it is terrible that there is even a story to tell about.
