Ingersoll 50+ Activity Centre – Heritage Presentation Series

George Leslie Mackay – Courthouse Square, Woodstock ON

Hello Everyone,

This guest post is from the Ingersoll 50+ Activity Centre – Heritage Presentation Series

The Embro Man Who Changed a Nation

Taiwan’s first education and health care networks were established by George Leslie Mackay, a Presbyterian missionary born near Embro Ontario. He came to Taiwan 150 years ago and is still revered by the Taiwanese more than a century after his death. For many, he is a present-day icon of Taiwanese nationalism. This powerful legacy will be explored in this presentation.

SPEAKER – Rev. Michael Stainton, Research Associate, York University Centre for Asian Studies and President to the Taiwanese Human Rights Association of Canada.
