Transcript of Immigration and Racism in the 1920's (History Gr. 10)

By Bethany Harwood, Emily Mcfarlane, and Nart Bagel Immigration and Racism in the 1920’s. Conclusion Racism There was a group that formed in Canada called the Ku Klux Klan.
They were very racist but also affected the immigration of people to Canada.
Even though they weren't as big in Canada as in the US, they still were a big problem
