In the 1850's Taisanese came to Montreal,
San Francisco, and to Vancouver to Build the
Railway tracks.In Montreal's ChinaTown alot
of Buildings are old. There are fewer Taisanese
now because their leaving to Toronto,caused by
french people and Quebec Goverment.But doesn't
mean that their is not alot like,their is now
35% Taisanese(Toisan),15%Manderine,40% Cantonese,
1% Fukenese,6%chinese Vietnamese,3%Chinese Thai,
Cambodian.From 1850's to 1980's in Montreal
the whole city was mostly English,And second
language French,and in the Chinese population
it was 95% Taisanese(Toisan),3% Cantonese,
2%Manderine.Montreal was the heart for all
Chinese Taisanese(Toisan)Canadian's, and hope
Taisanese will exist forever in Montreal,Vancouver,
and in San Francisco.
