Adventures In Intercultural Vancouver

How Chinese New Year in Vancouver symbolizes the emergence of a new, unique civic culture.

Maisonneuve urban affairs columnist Christopher DeWolf looks at the celebration of the Lunar New Year in Vancouver, a city of 2.1 million that is home to one of North America's largest Chinese communities. DeWolf discovers that Vancouver, an ethnically diverse city that is "as Asian as it is European," is forging a new and unique local culture that draws from its many ethnic ancestries -- Chinese in particular.
