questions.  We will also see a short video clip of the late Douglas
Jung, WWII Veteran and Canada's first Chinese Member of Parliament.

mingle with Asian Veterans of many heritages.   We will also have on
display the Display Panel of Chinese Canadian contribution to WWII and
there will be the Western Canadian premiere display of the Japanese
Diversity Panel.
