“加拿大联邦政府致力于与全加拿大各地的亚洲裔加拿大人站在一起,抗击在加拿大急剧上升之针对亚裔的种族主义和仇恨犯罪。加拿大对包容、多元化以及多元文化主义的承诺坚定不移,任何形式的种族主义或歧视都不应有立足之地。这些有害的、针对亚裔之种族主义行为必须停止,我们谴责一切形式的种族主义和歧视行为。

“自COVID-19疫情大流行开始以来,我们看到仇外的言论和找替罪羊的思潮助长了歧视和暴力。在我们继续抗击这场疫情大流行并努力实现包容性的复苏之时,重要的是我们必须继续致力于抗击所有形式的反亚裔种族主义和歧视,建设一个有意识地主动包容他人,并对所有人更安全的社会。

“联邦政府正在持续努力,采取行动抗击针对亚裔的种族主义。作为这一正在进行之工作的一部分,我们今天与来自温哥华、卡尔加里和埃德蒙顿的亚裔社区和商业领袖以及盟友等进行了会面,讨论在抗击针对亚裔种族主义的斗争中,加拿大政府如何能最好地支持他们并与他们开展合作。负责公共安全和应急准备部长的议会秘书莱特邦德(Joël Lightbound)代表布莱尔部长参加了讨论。

“不应该让任何人因为自己的身份而感到不安全或受到威胁。作为政府,我们有责任采取行动,我们将继续与亚裔社区携手合作,采取具体步骤,对抗一切形式的针对亚裔之种族主义和歧视。

“我们的工作还不止于此。值此困难时期,我们呼吁所有加拿大人都支持身边的亚裔朋友、家人和邻居,并与他们并肩站在一起,采取行动抗击仇视亚裔的种族主义。”

Statement

March 26, 2021 – Ottawa, Ontario

The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, and the Honourable Bardish Chagger, Minister of Diversity and Inclusion and Youth, today issued the following statement:

“The Government of Canada is committed to standing with Canadians of Asian descent from coast to coast to coast against the drastic rise in anti-Asian racism and hate crimes in Canada. Canada’s commitment to inclusion, diversity and multiculturalism is unwavering and offers no place for any forms of racism or discrimination. These harmful acts of anti-Asian racism must stop, and we condemn all forms of it.

“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen discrimination and violence fuelled by xenophobic rhetoric and scapegoating. As we continue to fight this pandemic and work toward an inclusive recovery, it is important that we remain committed to combatting anti-Asian racism and discrimination in all of its forms to build a society that is consciously more inclusive and safer for all.

“As part of our government’s ongoing work to take action against anti-Asian racism, we met today with Asian community and business leaders and allies from Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton to discuss how the Government of Canada can best support them and collaborate in the fight against anti-Asian racism. Joël Lightbound, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, participated in the discussion on behalf of Minister Blair.

“Minister Joyce Murray and members of Parliament Han Dong, Shaun Chen, Jean Yip, Randeep Sarai, Hedy Fry and Ken Hardie were also present, as well as law enforcement leadership, to hear directly from the community. As a society, as a government and as a country, we must all take action to combat anti-Asian racism and stop the stigma and the spread of misinformation, whether online, on our streets, in our homes or in the workplace.

“No one should ever feel unsafe or threatened because of who they are. As a government, we have a responsibility to take action, and we will continue to work with communities of Asian descent to take concrete steps to confront all forms of anti-Asian racism and discrimination.

“Our work does not stop here. We also call on all Canadians to support and stand with their friends, family and neighbours of Asian descent during these difficult times and to take action against anti-Asian racism.”
