There are many differences between China and Western cultures, from overall lifestyle to individual demeanor. The comic artist Tiny Eyes, aka Siyu, is chronicling them in her ongoing series of sequential art that highlights some of the things that she, as someone born and raised in Beijing, has experienced when communicating with people in the United States, France, and England. Through simple line drawings and a biting wit, she illustrates the impressions that the different cultures have of one another and their idiosyncrasies.

After completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1886, Chinese immigrants began to migrate from British Columbia to eastern Canada. Some settled in the Province of Québec where Chinese had already come by train from the United States or by ship across the Atlantic. Nearly all of them settled in Montréal; only a few went to Québec City.
