Question 1
Reverend Sang-Chul Lee and his family joined a large community of Korean immigrants to Canada.

False. When Lee and his family arrived in Canada in 1965 and settled in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Korean population at the time was made up of only a few families. The earliest contact Koreans had with Canada was in the 1890s through Canadian missionaries working in Korea. It was through these channels and church connections that Reverend Lee, like most Koreans, subsequently immigrated to Canada, seeking opportunities for economic dependence and a future for their families.
