Explores the contemporary global social issue of immigration by looking at one neighbourhood in the city of Vancouver. Collingwood, a predominantly Anglo-European community until the 1980s, has been transformed by the arrival of large numbers of Asians, Africans and Latin-Americans. A neighbourhood that just 20 years ago was locking its doors, afraid of change, and telling immigrants to go back where they came from, is now a welcoming place for everyone. How did this happen? How did strangers become neighbours?.
