My colleague, City Councillor Sean Chu joins me in this video as we offer our encouragement to Calgary's Chinese residents facing discriminatory acts. On the very day this video was posted, there were reports of graffiti in Calgary's Chinatown. Whatever you may think about the government of mainland China, please do not attribute the actions of that government to the Chinese Canadians and permanent residents who live with us in our community.
Sean and I offer our support to the residents of Calgary of Chinese origin (including those from Hong Kong and Taiwan), and to the businesspeople of Chinatown who are experiencing the same kinds of challenges as small businesspeople everywhere during the COVID-19 economic shutdown. You have our support.
