Philip Lee arrived in Winnipeg, fresh out of high school in Hong Kong, in the late summer of 1962.
The youngest of nine children from a well-to-do entrepreneurial family, Lee held a British passport. He was sponsored to Canada by his sister Angeline, who had moved to the Manitoba capital earlier to study education at the University of Manitoba.
His initial reaction upon arriving in Canada? "Wow, it's so spacious. The air is so clean," Lee said recently.

We appreciate the exceptional hospitality from Sonny and Patsy, Clement for his tireless run around while we were there, Peter Wong's great garden BBQ party, and of course all the old friends who found time to meet us. Hopefully we can return your favour when you join our cruise and come to Vancouver next year."
