Chinese immigrants helped to build the Canadian Pacific Railroad, but once it was completed the federal government passed the Chinese Head Tax and the Exclusion Act (1885-1947), which charged all Chinese a hefty immigration fee and forced families into decades of debt and separation. For this video documentary (2004, 44 min.), Karen Cho interviewed several elderly Chinese-Canadians who were affected by the law, several of whom doggedly seek financial restitution.
