On April 22, 2018, Vancouver City Council convened a Special Council meeting in Chinatown where Mayor Gregor Robertson delivered a formal apology for past discrimination against people of Chinese descent. The core recommendation was to develop an inclusive process towards a UNESCO World Heritage designation for Chinatown.
Join Melody Ma and Wendy Au and current Chinese Canadian Historical Society of BC (CCHSBC) President Sarah Ling for a provocative discussion on what has happened in Chinatown since the Apology, and how we can transform our city. The panelists for the evening will be joined by Hayne Wai (Moderator, CCHSBC Past-President) and Baldwin Wong (Senior Social Planner, City of Vancouver).
