As thereafter Canada Trust also extended branch offices throughout Canada after the success with Faye & Dean Leung founder & opened the 1st branch office in Canada.
Dean’s noble vision advised Canada Trust President Allen Taylor and Asst GM Jack Wilson in 1963 that Canada Trust should extend their opening hours to enrich Canada Trust business. Dean recommended be opened longer hours than then most banks closed at 3:00 P.M. Monday to Fridays.  Closed weekend…Canada Trust in our office opened to 5:00 P.M. that Dean suggested should opened to early evening and on Saturdays is good business…That were in 1962-1963 was impossible thinking and did not heed to Dean’s foresights good business vision!! Now 2013 Canada Trust opens 7 days a week…from 8 to 8 few years ago as Dean recommended in 1963 and again thereafter are now reality…Then now Canada Trust extended opening Saturdays and Sundays – 7 days a week, exactly as Dean told the President and J.D.

Faye & Dean Leung’s Canada Trust Chinatown Agency so successfully Mr. President Allen Taylor personally came from London Ontario Canada Head Office congratulated and honored Faye & Dean Leung with Gordon Farrell, Chairman, and J.D. Wilson with a extraordinary banquet at W.K. Gardens Restaurant with full bar by Mah… Then J.D.

That cultivated the happy relationships throughout the prominent bankers, businessmen, and trust companies later became managers of the Chinese and Oriental cultures and its business cultures & others; includes at many cocktails at the Wilsons’ home and functions throughout the years.  
That J. D. Wilson was to make a speech in the meeting of the aforementioned Council in Japan…Quote & unquote J.D. Wilson hilariously to Faye & Dean: “I sat on one of the twin bed in Japan Hotel room spread out the papers and chopstick on the other bed and stared at all without knowledge of Japan and what’s about, and I don’t know how to use chopstick…how in the world I got here and what am I going to do wondering and most concerns with feelings as lost there”… J. D. Wilson…in Tokyo Japan….

As prior Jack D. Wilson & Phyllis Wilson and President Allen Taylor were of no knowledge of the different cultures in era 1962 that Faye & Dean brought to them new dimensions of life and businesses as continued ‘get together’ includes Dean & Faye continued assisted initiated with Canada Trust Regional Asst. General Manager Jack D. Wilson, Charlie O’Hara, & Gerry Bradley developed & opened other branches of Canada Trust throughout the City as Oakridge Branch etc spin-offs from Dean & Faye Leung instrumental huge deposits in our original Chinatown Agency at our office at 156 East Pender Street. 
That Canada Trust Oakridge branch at Cambie & 41ST Ave. opened on October 1962 Gerry Bradley was manager for decades.  And Canada Trust New Westminster Branch with Moore as manager…East Hastings Branch manager Harrison by Nanaimo Street etc continued…Thereafter they through Dean & Faye connections Allen Taylor sent his daughter a nurse in Japan and flourished with Asia Pacific Basin Council etc…

Good heart Dean & Faye without greed were not really paid by Canada Trust at all…Canada Trust paid $400.00 month as rent of their uses of our office for Canada Trust…Naïve and too generous did not asked for remuneration from Canada Trust to Faye & Dean as took advantage Faye & Dean’s generosity, kindness and goodwill!!
 And Faye & Dean Leung to Hong Kong introduced Canada Trust to Hong Kong Banks in April 1964, was the 1st time ever a Canada Trust Company, Canada Trust are brought to introduced to Hang Sang Bank and Wing Lung Bank to be correspondence banking.  Because Faye & Dean business knowledge has done much banking for the pioneers Chinese funds to Hong Kong for China…Then China was Communists Regime was not possible do any business then with the general Chinese public…  to be continued….and to be edited
Deposits were so huge that then in the near future a full large Chinatown Branch must be moved from Faye & Dean’s Canada Trust Chinatown Agency office.  Which Faye & Dean does not run a full branch nor wishes to be manager of…
