A young man left the remote island of Samos, Greece in 1914, bound for Vancouver. There he worked as a waiter and became an accountant, and travelled to Ontario and Quebec, offering his services to early Greek immigrants who were setting up their first restaurants. Later, he returned to Greece and studied for the priesthood. He returned to Canada in the 1930's to become a parish priest. Still alive today at 102 years of age, Father Salamis is a legend in the Greek community. He baptized, married and buried many generations, and has witnessed the infancy and growth of Canada through the eyes of Greek-Canadians. In French: L'histoire du siècle du Père Salamis
