I’m Vietnamese born and I live in Canada. Somehow the ruling Progressive Conservatives knew that and my email, sending me a statement today from Minister Jason Kenney on the Journey to Freedom Day Act that just got Royal Assent (passed) on Friday, April 24th, 2015.

While I was in Ho Chi Minh City last month, I got my cousin Oc to give me a ride through the city centre, side streets and even some pretty narrow alleys on his moped. While he did this, I filmed it using a handheld camcorder placed to the side of his head, and narrated it. Then I edited the footage to keep the highlights of the trip.
