Courage and Compassion: The Story of Dr. Joseph Wong

The incredible and inspiring story of Dr. Joseph Wong begins in 1948 amid the desperate poverty and chaos of postwar Hong Kong. The story continues as this documentary follows Dr. Wong, a modest man who humbly deflects praise and shrugs off all the tributes and honours, although he will admit to being proud of his Order of Canada. To him, the nation’s highest civilian honour represents proof his love of this country has been returned.
