Sardar Gurdit Singh (1859-1954) was a pioneering Sikh traveler who
challenges several mighty regimes as he chartered a shipload of 376
Punjabi passengers to Vancouver in 1914.

He questioned Canada’s immigration laws based on racial prejudice and discrimination while raising many disturbing issues regarding British imperial policy towards its dominions, colonies and colonial people.
