HELP SAVE CHINATOWN: The Last Man In Chinatown
Last Man In Chinatown is a registered project to crowd fund, through the National Trust for Canada, the preservation of the Manie Opera Society and the Bow On Tong Buildings in what remains of Lethbridge's Chinatown. The preservation of these Municipally Designated Historic Resources will provide an opportunity to continue to tell the rich and colourful history of Chinese immigrants, their invaluable contribution to our economy as well as their tireless work to overcome racism and discrimination.
