Please tell me how the Chinese Visa Center in Vancouver can do 4-hour rush visas if documentation  ...

I believe that China's consulate network in Canada includes the main embassy in Ottawa, and four separate consulate-generals, including one in Vancouver.

I don't know how far the Visa Center in Vancouver is from Vancouver's Chinese consulate, but I'm guessing that either it's close enough for the 4 hours to be doable, or then they have sent one of their own staff (someone authorized to grant visas), to work physically at the Visa Center.

have all of the documentation verified,


Note that I never claimed to what degree the consulate verifies anything - they may have outsourced all the screening to the Visa Center, and simply act as rubber stamp themselves.

Yes, we know that many foreign teachers don't have teaching certificates, but your schools keep recruiting them, especially those with white skin, because Chinese parents demand white faces in class and schools have to meet their demand or face falling enrolment!

You did not do your research well. Here is the next slipup in your botched article:

Yes, they have to apply from overseas, but that is no excuse for them to break the law and teach without the relevant papers while being tourists in China!

Yes, this time you got it right: teaching material for the English class should be monolingual, not bilingual. Movies should have no subtitles in the learners' mother tongue. Most importantly: Chinese translations of original English texts should be banned from textbooks too. And Chinese English teachers should be competent enough to speak the language they teach and speak it to their pupils.

"Chinese translations of original English texts should be banned from textbooks too."

Yes, and Chinese teachers should be banned from translating foreign teachers' lessons in class to their students.  Why should a Chinese teacher accompany a foreign teacher in class ?   If a foreign teacher is worth his salt, he should be able to get his lessons across without a Chinese teacher doing translations into Chinese for him!
