    I am so proud,this will give us all stronger roots for our children.Thank you Canada-China Foundation.We must learn to walk hand in hand in order for everyone to respect one another.Our Cultural difference will be the Key to help us build those bridges.To me even how each nationality does business is pasted on from generation to generation.Therefore just because we have different opinions, does not mean we cannot come up with solutions to work together.When you understand a persons Culture,it is a deep rooted personality that passed on from our ancestors.Welcome to the team,and i am so grateful.
