The Early Chinese Canadians, 1858-1847 is a new on-line exhibition from Library and Archives Canada.
Among the features of the exhibition is a 1918 film of a Chinese Canadian funeral procession in Victoria, B.C. I thought some of the readers of a previous post here about Victoria's Harling Point Chinese Cemetery would want to see this.
It would be interesting to know what research has been done about this event and the film.
