Chinese people and the CP Rail
17, 000 Chinese workers came to work in BC. Chinese men worked for $1.00 a day. The Chinese people had to pay for their supplies and pay for their food. The white people didn't have to pay for their supplies and food. They had more money than the Chinese people. The Chinese people worked harder than the white people. Chinese people cleared the railway for the white people. They had to walk 40 kms to go to different destinations. They needed to return the Chinese men because it was all done. Some Chinese left and returned to China, others stayed in BC and became grocers, gardeners, cooks or servants in White households.
The Chinese believe that clipping toenails at night is bad luck. If a baby cries for no reason they believe ghosts are around.
