Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

THE GEORGE WONG TROUPE

The Canadian National Exhibition has always been a very prestigious engagement, well known for quality shows. They have always had two programs, the afternoon show usually consisting of Circus & Variety acts. The night show more like a Broadway show with a big star, and a line of dancers numbering as many as 120 girls.
Here is one of the acts in the afternoon show, The George Wong Troupe, George was the brother of Jim Wong, father of Jackie, & Carl who with their uncles Lum, & Sung, made up The Jim Wong Troupe. Eileen, who became Jackie's wife came from the George Wong Troupe.
