Scope and content

Sidney and Islands Review, “Trade Board Will Ask Premier To Intervene”,6 March 1919, Page 1

“Trade Board Will Ask Premier To Intervene
Chief among the nuisances mentioned was that at the local Chinese quarter on Sixth Street, where a very filthy condition is said to exist. Other points about town were mentioned, the opinion being expressed that the condition of roadside ditches constitutes a menace to the health of the community. The condition was said to be due at the Chinese quarters to a practice which the orientals have of draining noxious matter into the ditch, which has been quite effectively camouflaged to the sense of sight, but not to the olfactory organs.
It was brought out in the discussion that although the board has been for two years appealing to the minister of public health to have the ditch nuisance rectified, the appeals have been largely ignored.”
