May 30, 2020 – Rise of Anti-Asian Racism – 反亚裔种族主义的兴起
Rise of Anti-Asian Racism
Statement by Jim Karygiannis
I have recently been made aware of the growing number of racist incidence being face by members of the Canadian Asian community.
I have been told incidents ranging from a man being stabbed; to a young couple being physically assaulted; to an elderly individual being pushed so had he fell and sustained an injury; to a young person being subjected to racial slurs.
These actions are not acceptable in anywhere, let alone in Canada. We are a people who believe in equality, justice and tolerance. It is up to each one of us to speak up every time we see or hear racist actions or speech.
COVID-19 is causing all of us to be anxious but I strongly believe that we must work together to promote togetherness.
Respect our newcomer communities.
Accept our newcomer communities;
Celebrate our diversity; and,
Embrace our different cultures and traditions.
We are all part of the human RACE.

我被告知，有人被刺伤；有年轻夫妇被攻击; 有老人因被大力推倒而受伤; 还有年轻人受到种族诽谤。
这些行为在任何地方都是不能接受的，更何况在加拿大。 我们的人民相信平等、正义和包容。 每次看到或听到种族主义行为或言论时，我们每个人都应直言不讳地反击。
