What Happens when you celebrate the Pioneer cultures and history of BC all together in one night?
Did you know that the first Govenor of BC, James Douglas, was born in Demarara. Guyana - the Caribbean? His father was Scottish, and young James was educated in Lanark Scotland, and later worked for the Hudson's Bay Company
We'll continue to celebrate the fusion of the Scottish Robbie Burns Day and Chinese New Year cultures and traditions, to recognize the first non-native cultural pioneers of this province. The Scots came from the Far East, across the Atlantic, as the first White explorers, such as Alexander Mackenzie and Simon Fraser. And the Chinese traveled from the Far West across the Pacific, first as Buddhist Monks, identifying a land to the East of China as "Fusang".
Every year we celebrate with a mix of culinary cuisine featuring deep-fried haggis wonton and haggis dim sum, as well as traditional haggis served with Chinese vegetarian lettuce wrap.
