Screening of a new video on Dock Yip
“In 1942 Yip joined The Queen’s Own Rifles, where he met fellow reservist and law student Irving Himel. After graduating from Osgoode Hall Law School, they formed The Committee for the Repeal of the Chinese Immigration Act in 1946. The committee was successful in their efforts, which lead to Asians-Canadians gaining the right to vote.
