Paul Yee is one of the most prolific Chinese-Canadian writers. I first got to know Paul back in 1986, when he was chair of the Saltwater City planning committee – for a museum quality exhibit celebrating 100 years of Chinese-Canadian history in Vancouver. Since then, he was won the Governor General's Award for his book “Ghost Train”. In his non-fiction book, Saltwater City (revised edition) there is a picture from the 2004 Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner.
