CBC Television tracks down Chinese migrants deported from Prince George 15 years ago

"Voyage of the Black Dragon" airs on CBC TV's The Fifth Estate Friday night.

In 1999, a ship filled with 131 Chinese men, women, and children landed on a remote part of Haida Gwaii. They were detained in jail in Prince George, then deported.

15 years later, CBC Television's "The Fifth Estate" finds out what happened to these migrants who were in search of a better life. 

Listen to an interview with Fifth Estate host Lindan MacIntyre about "Voyage of the Black Dragon" at 7:10 Pacific Time on Daybreak North.
