  • Description

    Fifty Chinese Canadians and European immigrants picket the opening performance of the Peking Opera Company in Toronto. They were protesting against Chinese Communists being allowed to perform in Canada....marching in single file in front of the Royal Alexandra Theatre. Crowds lined both sides of the street to watch the pickets and first-nighters who seemed more amused than embarrassed at having to cross the picket line. The opera company is now completing a month long tour of Canada that began at the Vancouver International Festival about four weeks ago. It's the first group of Chinese Communist artists ever to perform in Canada.
