The people of John Day, Canyon City, and Grant county have forgotten their past history. In the 1870's and 1880's there was a large group of Chinese in Canyon City, approx. 800, who were burned out mysteriously and then were not allowed to build back in Canyon City. The Chinese population moved north of Canyon City to the present site of John Day. Because of the hatetred of the Chinese population by the people of the area of Grant County it was depleted to almost zero. So all I can say is that the people of the John Day area are hipocritical. When you shut out one group because you don't like their believes you are hurting the meaning of freedom in this country. Please think about that!
