The Conservative government recently imposed
a redress package unilaterally and ignored and rejected calls from head tax
families for a just and honourable redress.

 

The BC Coalition of Head Tax Payers, Spouses
and Descendants are today's Chinese Canadians. We welcome all Canadians to join
us in this quest for justice and honour for our
Chinese pioneers and their families.
