Hometown Across the Ocean
Wei Tao Bethune
There are all kinds of immigrants. At York University in Toronto, Wei Tao Bethune discovers new friends whose journey is the opposite of her own. She sees a poster advertising the Chinese Spring Festival. To her surprise, many of the people there are Anglo-Canadians dressed in traditional Chinese clothes, speaking Mandarin. As children of missionaries, they had been born and educated in Sichuan. The Communists ousted them, and so they have emigrated to a Canada they never knew.
