Wui Gwai: Hong Kong Homecoming 53:59

I can’t remember exactly when my parents told me we were immigrating from Hong Kong to Canada in 1992. All I remember, as a six-year-old, was my mom selling me on the idea by telling me about the swing set I would have at our new house. I didn’t appreciate what my parents were giving up; their jobs, family and friends, and the sense of security that came with all of that.

Only later did I understand why they, and thousands of others, did it — because they were scared of the unknowns around the handover of their home country in 1997, from the United Kingdom to the People’s Republic of China.

In the late 1980s and early 90s, the special administrative region of Hong Kong was the largest source of overseas immigrants to B.C. At the peak in 1994, 48,000 people moved to Canada, with 16,000 choosing to settle in B.C.

Dr. Yu, professor of history at University of British Columbia, believes Kitsilano is “too white.”

Kitsilano, a middle class neighbourhood in Vancouver B.C., Canada, has a problem. Not a problem for its community leaders or residents, but rather for a local university professor by the name of Henry S. Yu.

RICHMOND, B.C.: Condo-owners insist all meetings be conducted only in Mandarin

Mandarin-only condo meetings provoke human rights complaint in Richmond

Capture_2-richmondbcdemogrA group of Richmond condo owners has filed a complaint with the BC Human Rights Tribunal after allegedly being discriminated against by a new Chinese-speaking strata council.

Posted by: 

A group of English-speaking condo owners in Richmond say they’ve been squeezed out by other owners who insist all meetings be conducted only in Mandarin.

The dispute is being taken to the B.C. Human Rights Council, with the English owners saying they’re victims of race-based voting manipulation.

 

Here’s an excerpt from a Richmond News story by Graeme Wood:

A group of Richmond homeowners has filed a complaint with the BC Human Rights Tribunal after allegedly being discriminated against by a new Chinese-speaking strata council.

Andreas Kargut, who filed the claim on behalf of several other Wellington Court strata members, told the Richmond News a group of Mandarin-speaking homeowners purposefully voted to expel non-Mandarin speaking members from council.

Since then, the new council has moved to conduct all official business, including council meetings, in Mandarin.

“Anyone they deemed who was non-Mandarin speaking, they ousted,” said Kargut.

Trampled Under Foot: The Diversity Industry’s Attack On Traditional Canadian Identity

Trampled Under Foot: The Diversity Industry’s Attack On Traditional Canadian Identity

Canadian history informs us that our country was founded in the year 1867, but you would never know it by our nation’s leading advocates of ethnic and cultural diversity. For these folks— a loose affiliation of government-supported immigration and multiculturalism organizations—our nation may as well have been founded in 1988, the year the Multicultural Act of Canada first came into existence.

At the time, few understood the true impact of this piece of legislation, and in many respects this continues to be the case. How many Canadians are aware, for example, that for purposes of promoting the cultures of the nations from which they came, 20 billion tax payer dollars have been handed to our largest, wealthiest, and best politically organized “ethnic” communities?

Considering the multi-faceted effect of this policy, however, the financial aspect is not the worst of it. Indeed, it nearly pales in comparison to how multiculturalism has become as weapon to denigrate and disempower the descendants of the founders of our nation—Canadians of European heritage.

How can this be? For decades Canadians have been informed by government and media of the virtues and social benefits of multiculturalism. Has something gone wrong in Canada’s collective journey toward a multi-ethnic utopia?

It darn well has, and if allowed to continue unabated, it will spell the end of Canada as it was defined by the founders of our nation.

Much fanfare has also been made of the placement of a handful of so-called minority Canadians within Trudeau’s cabinet, as well as much ethnic community excitement regarding the addition of Sikh, Moslem and Aboriginal candidates to Parliament.

One of the most profound social implications of Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party victory in the recent Canadian election can be summarized in a single word—diversity.

The ramifications of this unprecedented political development are not to be overlooked. Within this scenario, the most topical issue is the establishment of “gender quality” in government, whereby our freshly minted Prime Minister created his cabinet based upon an equal representation of men and women. This in itself, however, does not reveal the full picture.

As with most issues related to political correctness and multiculturalism in Canada, the closer one looks, the more things are not as they appear.

As can be expected, Canada’s mainstream media has been responsible for much of the hoopla, filling our major news publications with the virtues of these accomplishments, as well as informing readers of how the situation best exemplifies democratic tradition within our nation.

Is this really the case? Are Canadians really best served by these post-modern standards as introduced by Justin and company? As with most issues related to political correctness and multiculturalism in Canada, the closer one looks, the more things are not as they appear.

Minister McCallum,

You have been in politics for a long time. I trust you are a strong Canadian and very fond of our democracy and values as most Canadians do.

You’re about to go to work to bring in 25,000 of the millions refugees chaotically invading the EU. First, and although you must be well briefed by our security authorities, I want to stress that these refugees cannot be screened, not before December, not ever.

The EU is likely doomed and it`s coming here.
