The Chinese Immigration Act was replaced with the Chinese Exclusion Act, effectively banning Chinese immigration. This evoked stronger discrimination to the growing Chinese communities all over Canada, including Coquitlam. The photo shown here is a Coquitlam class portrait (likely from Millside High School), circa. 1928.
