History is full of amazing stories—of triumph and of loss, of laughter and of tragedy, of hope and of bitterness. But so many stories have been forgotten or ignored.

The stories of Chinese Canadians have either been left out of our history, or the stories we hear are often about the terrible things that were done to them, rather than what they were doing. Who will remember our forgotten elders–the sacrifices they made, the struggles they fought for us?

They are uncommon stories, seldom heard, but in order to create a common past for all Canadians, we must remember those who have been forgotten.
These are Canadian stories. These are family stories. These are our stories.
