Chinese Canadian Museum hosts Victoria Second World War veterans for Remembrance Day

On Memorial Day, local veterans will be answering questions at the Chinese Canadian Museum.

Visitors can stop by the museum on November 11 at Fan Tan Lane to meet and say hello to Gordie Quan, who served in World War II.

“Gordie will be visiting our temporary exhibit site between 11:30am and 1:30pm,” said Monica Cheng, Museum Outreach Coordinator.

Cheng said Quan will make the event easier to attend by going back and forth with guests to share his experience, rather than giving a speech from the podium.

“This is a unique opportunity because many World War II veterans are advanced in age or have passed away,” Cheng said.

The temporary exhibition grounds cater to the experiences of Chinese-Canadian veterans of World War II, many of whom were born in Victoria or lived here as children.

The museum will be open on November 11 from 10:15 am to 5 pm.

Admission to the museum is by donation, and visitors can learn more about the event at the following website Canadian Chinese Museum.
