The migration of Vietnamese refugees to Canada in the ‘70s following the end of the Vietnam War will be marked this weekend with the display in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery of a boat used by some refugees.
The so-called Freedom Boat carried 15 refugees in 1981 from Vietnam to the Philippines.
In the years following the fall of the South Vietnamese regime in Saigon to the Communist forces on April 30, 1975, hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese fled the country.
The Freedom Boat was given by the Filipino government to a non-profit Vietnamese cultural group in California. The vessel is now on a tour of the U.S. and Canada.
