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.
