History

In 1979, Chinese Canadians across the country united to protest the irresponsible journalism of a national televised program: "Campus Giveaway". As a result, CTV publicly apologized for the racist overtones and inaccuracies of that particular episode. More significantly, the participants against W5 from cities across Canada assembled and held a conference in Toronto. Out of that meeting, the importance and need for a strong, national organization became so evident that the Chinese Canadian National Council was formed.
