At this townhall we will delve into a variety of topics from affordability, inclusivity, immigration, culturally sensitive care for seniors, transportation and accessibility, to community security. Representatives from the major political parties in BC will have an opportunity to articulate their respective views on the pre-submitted questions in an engaging format.

Representatives of party candidates including 1) Michael Lee, B.C. Liberals candidate (Vancouver-Langara) 2) George Chow, B.C. NDP candidate (Vancouver-Fraserview); and 3) Michael Markwick, Green Party candidate (West Vancouver-Capilano) will be present at the town hall.

The townhall will be moderated by Renu Bakshi, the former CTV news anchor and a senior communications strategist. It will be conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation in both Cantonese and Mandarin for those non-English speaking individuals.

“Civic education is important for long term residents of B.C. and newcomers. This pre-election townhall will help voters make an informed decision on May 9 -  the provincial election day,” said Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S.

Foundation.

“This year the gala was extremely popular and all dinner tickets were sold out one week before the event,” said Brandon Hui, Jason Lam and Walter Soo, Co-Chairs of Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala. “We were thrilled about the overwhelming support from the communities. This event has become a special occasion that we gather those who share our vision and mission, and acknowledge the great cause that S.U.C.C.E.S.S. undertakes. This has continuously inspired us to help immigrants integrate into the society.”  

Among the dignitaries at the event included Hon. Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice, Hon. Christy Clark, Premier of British Columbia, Raymond Louie, Acting Mayor of Vancouver and Malcolm Brodie, Mayor of Richmond.

The evening started off with a VIP reception where guests mingled and strolled through the more than 150 silent auction items that were on display, including an eclectic selection of wine, electronics, furniture, dining certificates and other exquisite items donated by local businesses.  

The two gala performers, Linda Chung and Avan Yu, gave a rousing performance at the event. Both Linda and Avan are immigrants from Asia. They grew up in Vancouver and now continue their careers and journey internationally.

Since 1997, Air Canada has been the Official Airline Sponsor for the annual galas and has flown in excess of 100 artists, including Avan Yu and Linda Chung, from different cities to Vancouver to participate every year.

“We are thankful for the continued support and contributions from our generous sponsors and donors who made the Gala a resounding success year after year,” said Sing Lim Yeo, Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation.
