Celebration of Life - Sid Chow Tan

Thank you to everyone who attended the Celebration of Life of Sid Tan. Sid was renowned for his activism in highlighting awareness of the injustices of the Chinese Canadian head tax and as a community organizer for a number of non-government organizations. As a paper son and descendant of head-tax payers, Sid dedicated his life to redress. He was a community activist concerned with environmental and human rights and social justice issues and had produced and crewed hundreds of hours of community television programming, much of the national and international award-winning. He was active in ICTV, an Independent Community Television Co-operative in Vancouver.
