ROM Opens Gates of China's Forbidden City

As a senator representing Ontario and a proud Chinese-Canadian, I am thrilled to be an active member of The Forbidden City’s Community Advisory Council. We are a diverse group of individuals who assist the Royal Ontario Museum, foster community partnerships and counsel on exhibition programming.  Moreover, I am delighted that visitors from all backgrounds will have an opportunity to learn about a relatively unknown period in Chinese imperial history.

I encourage everyone to attend the Forbidden City exhibition. It truly is not only a compelling testament to Canada's strong bilateral relationship with China, but also a true reflection of our country’s rich and diverse heritage.
