To some, it’s one of the oldest communities in Vancouver and a beloved cultural neighbourhood. To others, it’s the place to go for the best roast pork in the city. To Sonny, it’s where he grew up, and he’s determined to see it flourish.
“My connection to Chinatown is purely emotional,” notes Sonny. “I believe it deserves a future that is as important as its role in the Chinese community of the past.”
As a member of the Chinatown Legacy Stewardship Group, Sonny will provide guidance to the City on developing a long-term vision for Chinatown, community priorities, and relationship-building. Other members include representatives from Heritage Vancouver and the Vancouver Chinatown Business Improvement Association. Sonny will lead the arts and culture committee.
“Vancouver should have the most celebrated Chinatown in the world.”
