The Lone Scout painted in 1991 by Stanley Hiromichi Taniwa

Edward Shige Yoshida was born in Victoria, BC in 1908, and was raised in the quiet mill town of Chemainus. In 1929, he realized his dream in starting the 2nd Chemainus Boy Scouts, an all Japanese-Canadian troop and the first of its kind in the country. The delicate, porcelain plate quality of his portrait in the mural The Lone Scout belies the wit, energy, and determination of this slightly built but significant character in the life of Chemainus.
