I have developed a reputation as a bridge person – a bridge between faiths, cultures and economic classes.  Ability to think “outside the box,” combined with fairness and insight are often required.

These situations include:

  • devising strategy to save Russian defector from imminent deportation
  • bridging conflicts within Chinese communities, both generational and cultural
  • working toward cooperation between government and First Nations. These include award-winning artists and filmmakers.
  • Chaplain of Pacific Unit 280 , Chinese Canadian WWII veterans and the Chinese Canadian Military Museum
  • Chair, Community Historical Recognition Program, advising Cabinet Minister Jason Kenney on the granting of $5,000,000 to Chinese Canadian projects
