Canada’s Newest Export – Buddhist Monks

The story itself is irrelevant to Canada, but here’s the interesting part: 

“Chen’s daughters, both married, were prompt in following their father’s wishes for monks to back him, but they did so separately.

Vivien invited clergy from the Zhan Shan Si monastery in Clear Water Bay while Angela looked to Canada-based monastery Wan Mun Si.”

So the well-heeled choose Canadian monks to prove their filial piety.  This must generate business for airlines, hotels, restaurants and more.  Not to be sanctimonious, but can sanctity become our newest export?

Does anyone know which monastery this is or where it is?
