April 1941 – November 1945: Non-whites can only swim on Tuesday morning at the Crystal Pool (Vancouver)

In April 1941, Vancouver Newspapers began reporting on the “Crystal Pool Controversy”; where the Vancouver Parks Board imposed a colour ban limiting the use of the pool for Blacks and Chinese to only Tuesday mornings. While some Park Board members did protest, the “colour line” lasted for more than 4 years until November 1945.
