Generations The Chan Legacy

Generations The Chan Legacy

The Chans go back seven generations in Canada and are one of the oldest families on the West Coast. Reverend Chan's granddaughter, Helen Lee, grandson Victor Wong and great grandson Gary Lee recall being barred from theatres, swimming pools and restaurants. Finally, in 1947, Chinese born in Canada were granted citizenship and the right to vote. Today, Todd Wong represents a younger generation of successful professionals and entrepreneurs scattered across North America. He promotes his own brand of cultural integration through an annual event in Vancouver called Gung Haggis Fat Choy.
