Head Tax spouses ceremony with Secretary of State (Multiculturalism) on Friday 13

Head Tax spouses ceremony with Secretary of State (Multiculturalism) on Friday 13

Okay…
it's Friday the Thirteenth.  And apparently the BC Head Tax
Families Society was not notified about this event.  Maybe it was
done on purpose… maybe it was done by accident.  Maybe head tax
descendants are not supposed to participate… only pre-invited head
tax spouses?

I don't think my grandmother was invited, even
though she received notice that her application was received… at
least my mother didn't tell me.

Doesn't the government know that Friday 13th, is a bad luck in Chinese custom?
