Reporter tried to answer two questions.
Why there is Chinese restaurant in every small town.
Who are the families that run them.
Actually there were three more.
How her family got into Canada in the first place.
How her parents run Legion Restaurant in rural Abbotford before she was born.
Why people kept on going to Chinese-Canadian (very loosely) restaurants despite authentic Chinese restaurants available thanks to Hong Kong Chef influx starting in the 1980s.
I'm sure rental car company giving clown car to author & her future spouse in epic cross-country trip was an honest mistake...
Book unofficial companion to Escape to Gold Mountain graphic novel.
Her parents sure had to deal with insular sometimes racist locals back then just like me dealing with random non-constructive online potshots from immature, inconsiderate & illequipped Curlywhirly.
Such a beautiful story. Thank you Ann Hui. Although my parents didn't run a restaurant, our immigrant stories are so similar, the hardships, the sacrifices for the next generation. When I read this book I felt I was reading a story of my own family, even to the point of when my own father was dying of cancer, how he said "I have no regrets". I was brought to tears.
For those waiting for the book - this title is currently available on Hoopla as an eBook!
There was at least one in every Ontario town back in the day. Part of the Chinese Canadian experience.
