It was November 26, 2005 when Prime Minister Paul Martin came to Vancouver to sign the
Agreement-In-Principle with the National Congress of Chinese Canadians at the SUCCESS
building in Vancouver's Chinatown.

Chinese Canadians came from throughout the Vancouver Lower Mainland to combine their
voices in protest against an "agreement" that contained pre-conditional clauses of "No Apology"
and "No Compensation."

Saltwater City film crews were there to record the action.
