Project Details

The Chinese Graduates Association of Alberta (CGAA), in partnership with Lost Years Production Inc., will create a two-part documentary mini-series entitled "Lost Years: The Chinese Canadian Struggle for Justice." The two hour mini-series will: document the stories and recollections touching upon the outgoing Lieutenant Governor of Alberta; and examine the impact of modern-day redress efforts for the Chinese Head Tax in Canada and how they sparked relationships with the Chinese community in New Zealand, who were seeking their own redress for a comparable historical restriction on Chinese immigration, the Toll Tax. The documentary will air on CBC-Alberta in July, 2011 as part of its Canada Day Programming.
