The CP Rail Way and the Chinese immigrants.

Canada wanted a railway to stretch from one side of the country to the other side. Chinese immigrants were hired for $1.00 a day and were given the most back-breaking and dangerous work. Many Chinese workers were killed by landslides and dynamite blasts. When the CP rail way was completed in 1885, many Chinese people returned to China, but many could not afford the ride back. The people that stayed in Canada had to find other jobs.
