Spirit of the Dragon
In 1923, the Canadian government passed the infamous Exclusion Act, which barred all Chinese immigration to Canada for 24 years and required all Chinese-Canadian citizens to carry an identification card. Jean Lumb was one of those Canadians, and this documentary is her story. Jean worked much of her life to have this law changed, and in 1976, she was the first Chinese-Canadian ever to receive an Order of Canada. In 1995 irony and life came full circle for Jean Lumb when she became a citizenship judge, swearing in new Canadian citizens.
