A Demographic Portrait
of Chinese Canadians in Greater Vancouver',

Wed, July 27 at 7:30pm in the Alice MacKay Room.

Vancouver Public Library, Central Branch

350 West Georgia St.

immigration and settlement patterns, intermarriage, the state of elders
and voter  participation, present many challenges for Greater
Vancouver's Chinese Canadian population.

Andrew Yan is a doctoral student in the Department of Urban Planning at
the University of California. He is also a research associate from the
Simon Fraser University's Institute of Governance Studies, and a
visiting scholar at New York University.

Jen Lau from the Chinese Canadian Historical Society sends the message below:

Please find attached a flyer for Andrew Yan's upcoming talk at the
Vancouver Public Library: This free event is being
co-sponsored by the VPL, the UBC Department of History, and the Chinese Canadian
Historical Society of BC.  Feel free to circulate.

 Andy will kick off the evening with his presentation, to be
followed by 2-3 responders (Henry Yu and Karin Lee are confirmed) and
then a Q&A session. 
Rob Ho, CCHS Board member, will serve as moderator for the evening.

Andy has been quite the media darling – he was interviewed on Fairchild
Radio on Monday, appeared in the SIng Tao on Tuesday and will appear
on/in CityTV, CBC BC Almanac, 24 Hours and Ming Pao next week.

Although the talk falls on the same night as the fireworks, we're positive Andy's talk will be equally as sparkling.  🙂

Hope to see you next Wednesday!
