Consul General LIU Said, the relations between the Chinese people and the First Nations in Canada could be traced as far back as the 19th century, while the relations between the Chinese people and Musqueam dated back to 1920. In recent years, both sides have frequent exchanges and visits. We wish to continue the long lasting friendship.
