- The Vancouver Sun and other media gave hefty advance coverage to “a major Simon Fraser University conference” this week that explored how Chinese immigrants are coping with maintaining historical legacies while trying to integrate into Canadian society, and how Chinatowns here and elsewhere have evolved. Quoted were Paul Crowe, director of the David Lam Centre at SFU, and Rosalie Tung, prof of international business. Both the Early Edition and the On the Coast shows on CBC Radio also gave advance airtime to the conference, with good mentions of SFU. The Fanny Kiefer show on Shaw-TV also did an advance story, interviewing Jan Walls, prof emeritus and founder of the David Lam Centre and of SFU’s Asia-Canada Program. And Canadian Immigrant magazine ran a story on the conference, from an SFU news release.
