Toronto - During a down pour this evening two commemorative plaques that honour those who helped create the Toronto's Zhong Hua Men Archway were presented at 573 Gerrard Street East.
On September 12, 2009 the archway was officially opened to commemorate Canada's Chinese pioneers, labourers, railway workers and subsequent descendants and immigrants of Chinese descent who contributed to all aspects of Canadian society. The archway that leads into the East Chinatown area of Toronto is designed to look like the traditional gateways in China.

This was a pet project of the late NDP leader Jack Layton. His son City Councillor Michael Layton attended the ceremony this evening seeing the completion of ten years of his father's work.
