Komagata Maru Discussion!


Dr. Hugh Johnston, Professor Emeritus History at SFU and author of “The Voyage of the Komagata Maru, was the guest speaker at at Surrey’s Fleetwood Library last Saturday. Prof. Johnston led the discussion on Komagata Maru: Continuing the Journey, which looked at the issues surrounding the tragedy, which remains a black mark of racism and bigotry on Canada’s early history. Surrey Tynehead NDP Candidate Raj Hundal also joined in the discussion. Dr. Hugh’s presentation was followed by a website demonstration and a bhangra dance performance.
