Chinese Canadian

FullSizeRender 2

I snapped this picture in Toronto Chinatown yesterday. It really represents a chapter in Chinese Canadian history book.

Known for having extremely admirable work ethic, just like many other ethnic communities in Canada, Chinese Canadian community has helped build the kind of Canada as the world comes to know and love.

No greatness can be achieved singlehandedly. The beautifully immense Canada of 2015 would not have been united from its west coast to the east without having Chinese migrants labor away, under starvation, on the most dangerous parts of the national railroad back in the day. Canada’s image as a peaceful warrior of the world would not have been acquired had Chinese Canadians not demonstrated their brave volunteerism to the country in WWI.

A lesson in history. A moment in time.
