In 2023, Canada experienced significant events with far-reaching consequences. Inflation and soaring prices dominated headlines, prompting the central bank to raise interest rates, resulting in a slowdown in the real estate market and increased economic burdens for homeowners. The nation witnessed the coronation of King Charles III in May, marking the beginning of a new era. Conservative Party of Canada leader Pierre Poilievre's support surged, while the Liberal Party faced dwindling popularity. Foreign interference in domestic politics strained Canada-China relations. Meanwhile, in another major Asian nation, India, a diplomatic crisis unfolded following the stabbing of Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar, leading to tensions between the two countries. Toronto elected its first highly esteemed Chinese-Canadian mayor, Olivia Chow. Widespread wildfires, exacerbated by global warming, ravaged various regions, and a notable event was the strike by Vancouver port workers. These developments underscored the diverse challenges and noteworthy occurrences that shaped the Canadian landscape in 2023.

China Review 2023    

Fairchild TV1|January 2, 2024 (Tue)| 9:50pm

At the beginning of 2023, China announced the cancellation of all epidemic prevention and entry quarantine measures, bidding farewell to a three-year-long pandemic. Life gradually returned to normal, with the central government implementing various measures to stabilize the economy and boost consumption. China successfully hosted major events such as the XXXII 2023 Summer World University Game and the Asian Games.

However, China faced a real estate crisis, and regions in North China and Northeast China experienced continuous heavy rainfall. Over five million people were affected, with more than 400,000 rooms collapsing or suffering severe damage, resulting in billions of economic loss. Meanwhile, tensions in the Taiwan Strait were escalating. Against this backdrop, the leaders of China and the United States held a summit. How did their relationship change?

On and off the stage, artistes and audiences were fully engaged, unified by the game ambience. The first game started with the celebrity team versus the audience team, testing both teams’ awareness and steadiness. Their challenge was to flip a cup placed at the edge of the table and make it land upside down. The competition was divided into three rounds, and the winner was determined by how quickly the participant managed to pass them all. Favored by luck, Shaun successfully flipped the cup and was complimented by a round of applause throughout the venue. The second game tested the collaboration between the stars and their fans. Each pair held different props, and the fastest team that gathered the target combination of items won. Elaine showcased her agility as she swiftly completed the task with her partner and soon advanced to the next level. Likewise, the “Game Master” Sisley grasped the rhythm of the game promptly. The ultimate game not only required participants to unleash their imagination but also put their teamwork to test. Ben demonstrated exceptional observational skills, especially when confronted with a clue related to his wife. He of course completed the task with ease. As hilarious as she possibly be, Sisley transformed herself into a professional artist to effortlessly capture the essence of the given topic. While lucky participants were able to win exquisite TVB souvenirs onstage, the four stars also took turns to go offstage to distribute gifts to other audiences. Their fans eagerly rushed to take photos with their idols, igniting a zealous vibe throughout the auditorium.

Another highlight of the Party was undoubtedly the singing performance by the four stunning stars. Elaine is not only skilled in acting but also in singing. Although rarely performing publicly, she brought two of her favourite numbers "Snowman" and "Care Too Much About You” to greet her Canadian fans and even went down the stage to interact with them. Ben, who is gradually transitioning to a versatile artiste in the areas of film, television, and music, kept his promise by delivering a very personal rendition of his own composed songs, “You and Your Significant Other” and “Road Warrior”. The May birthday boy also saved his first public performance of his latest release, "Birthday of the Imperial Guard," to the occasion. This song of a unique genre was presented as a birthday gift to Fairchild TV to commemorate our 30th anniversary. The light-hearted melody brought all the guests together to clap along when the energy in the room soared to its peak. In addition to significant advancements in acting skills, Sisley, who was previously known for her involvement in a girl group, has been practising her singing as well. The audiences were mesmerized by her sentimental performances of "Love Prediction” and "We Should Love Each Other". Often praised for both his acting and singing techniques, Shaun graced the stage with the classic "Yesterday" in his captivating and vibrant voice. Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2022 Champion Yi Yi Wang, herself an accomplished dancer, complemented the beautiful melody with elegant and sophisticated movements, truly enhancing the performance. At the finale, Shaun brought forth live onstage “Because I Love You” from his TVB Drama “Take Two”. A series of unforgettable moments in the dramatic scenes was recalled instantly into the audience’s minds.

Iconic Music Legend Joseph Koo Passed Away at the Age of 92

01/03/2023

Renowned composer, producer, conductor and veteran Fairchild Television Advisory Board member Joseph Koo passed away on January 3rd at the age of 92.

Koo was born on January 9th, 1931, in Guangzhou and developed a passion for music and the arts at a very young age. His family relocated to Hong Kong when the Sino-Japanese War broke out. Under the guidance of his sister Carrie Koo, a popular singer and actress in the ‘50s and ‘60s, Koo developed his skills as a talented pianist. Koo officially launched a career in the music industry after entering a song writing contest organised by Shaw Brothers Studio for the movie “Love Without End” with the song “Dream,” followed by a series of highly acclaimed movie theme songs. Sponsored by Sir Run Run Shaw and Ms. Mona Fong, Koo attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston in the early ‘60s as its first Chinese student. He worked for both the Shaw Brothers and Golden Harvest Studios after graduating, composing original film scores.

In 1968, Koo was invited by Robert Chua to join TVB as a judge for a singing talent show and Music Director for the long-running variety show “Enjoy Yourself Tonight.” In the ‘70s and ‘80s, he wrote numerous TV theme songs, most of which have become all-time golden classics. Koo became a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 1982 in honour of his remarkable contributions to the music industry in Hong Kong.

Koo kept creating music well into the ‘90s and immigrated to Canada around that time. He composed the original theme song for Fairchild Television and Fairchild Radio during the stations' inception in 1993 and, two years later, created the theme music for the inaugural Miss Chinese Vancouver and Miss Chinese Toronto Pageants. Both pieces are familiar tunes on TV and various platforms up until this day. With tremendous experience and insight in the broadcasting business, Koo was a long-time member of the Fairchild Television Advisory Board and sat on the panel for the New Talent Singing Awards Vancouver Audition multiple times as a head judge.

In 2007, he wrote the theme song for the TVB drama in commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Handover. Later that year, he was invited by the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra to be the conductor for a tribute concert for Koo himself.

He received an honorary doctorate degree from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2014 when he was honoured at a concert by the CUHK Choir. Koo announced his retirement in 2015 with a celebration concert. On July 1st that year, he was awarded the Bronze Bauhinia Star by the Hong Kong SAR. Koo returned to Vancouver afterwards to enjoy his retirement.

Koo peacefully passed away from natural causes while surrounded by family. He will be dearly missed within the music industry and by Chinese communities around the world.
