Statement on Racist Incident in Markham- June 17, 2017

Statement by Mary Ng, Member of Parliament, Markham-Thornhill

Markham,Ontario
June 17, 2017

I was shocked this week to learn about an incident in Markham involving a young man making offensive remarks to an elderly man of Asian descent on the street, and another person in a nearby car.

These racist actions will not be tolerated in Markham-Thornhill.

I am pleased with the work done by the York Regional Police, and I will continue to work with them on this matter as they find the person responsible for this incident.  I also will continue to work closely with my colleagues at the provincial and municipal level.

Markham Thornhill is one of Canada’s most diverse communities. It is our diversity that makes us strong and it is a value we hold dear in Canada.

Chinese-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric. Diversity and inclusion reaffirms our belief that individual and cultural community contributions enhance and enrich our country.

Racism, discrimination, and hate crimes have no place here or anywhere in Canadian society.

聲明

萬錦市康山區國會議員 伍鳳儀

萬錦市,安大略

2017年6月17日

“對於本周萬錦市發生的一宗白人青年辱罵過馬路的華人長者及另一位華裔駕車者事件,我感到非常震驚。這種種族歧視行為在萬錦市康山區是不會被容忍的。

我很欣慰的是萬錦市約克區警署已經介入調查,我將繼續與他們保持合作,追查該事件涉案男子所應承擔的責任,同時我與我的同事們也會繼續與省府、市府緊密合作,創造一個和諧美好的社區。

萬錦市康山區是加拿大最具多元文化的社區之一,正因為多元化這個要素我們的國家才得以強大,這也是我們熱愛加拿大的價值所在。

華裔加拿大人是我們國家民族結構最重要的組成部分,多樣性和包容性重申了我們的信念,即個人和多元文化社區的貢獻增強和豐富了我們的國家。

种族主义、歧视和仇恨犯罪在这里以及加拿大社会任何一个地方都没有生存空间。”
