May Q. Wong is the author of recently released “City in Colour: Rediscovered Stories of Victoria’s Multicultural Past.” Victoria, BC has long been known as being “more English than the English”, but it wasn’t always this way. At its beginnings Victoria was a diverse and accepting city. “City in Colour” is Wong’s way of speaking out against the rhetoric of fear regarding immigrants & refugees. Wong is also the author of “A Cowherd in Paradise” (2012).
