这十封邮件的收件者分别是:省长贺谨、省司法厅长尹大为、列治文市长和市议会、省议员Teresa Wat、省议员Kelly Greene、省议员Henry Yao、省议员Man Singh、列治文警察局相关警官、联邦议员黄陈小萍、RCMP。

众协会呼吁“列治文RCMP能对咖啡馆发生的仇视事件有效处理并公开处理结果,从而对仇视亚裔的行为起到震慑和遏制作用。”

在此之前,4月5日下午,加拿大华人妇女联合会特意去咖啡馆看望了受害者。据悉,事件发生后,一些社团、个人纷纷去咖啡馆送花及卡片表达关切和慰问,用切实行动向社会传达出坚决反对歧视的决心,激发出更广泛的社会支持。

 

给列治文警局、市府的公开信中文版:

列治文警察局、市政府:

我们65家协会感谢您长期对社区所做的服务。

3月29日下午,发生在列治文渔人码头咖啡馆的女店主被泼咖啡事件引发我们的密切关注。

在列治文这个以多元文化为自豪的城市,肇事者竟公然多次骂出“F* Chinese”,还将热咖啡泼在咖啡馆女性工作人员的脸上!而就在3月27日和28日,列治文及温哥华、三联市等本省和加拿大数个城市刚刚进行了反对歧视亚裔的游行、示威活动。由此可见,这件事的性质非常恶劣!引发了社会和各个社区极大的震动!

肇事者并非无意为之。根据已经发布在网络上的视频可知,那位男性肇事者在公寓楼停车场标明禁止洗车的地方洗车时,受到一位华裔女士提醒。他竟然使用种族歧视的语言破口大骂,并且不在乎随后赶到的女士的朋友用手机拍摄,仍对着镜头大骂“F* Chinese”。

对于这样习惯于歧视、使用仇恨语言的人来说,倘若不能予以法律有效的制裁,将会更加嚣张。同时,也会严重助长对亚裔的歧视、暴力行为。如您所知,3月27日,UBC校园内一位韩裔女子遭到陌生人殴打;3月29日,温哥华市内一位亚裔女子遭到袭击。针对亚裔,包括对亚裔女性的仇视频繁发生,目前的局面非常危急。加拿大华人妇女联合会、加拿大四川同乡总会等众多服务于社区的社团对这样的局面感觉到十分担心。

加拿大倡导多元文化,对种族歧视零容忍。我们相信加拿大的司法公正,希望列治文RCMP能对咖啡馆发生的仇视事件有效处理并公开处理结果,从而对仇视亚裔的行为起到震慑和遏制作用。

再次感谢您长期以来所提供的良好服务。

 

给列治文警局、市府的公开信英文版:

Dear Richmond Municipal Government and RCMP:

On behalf of the 65 undersigned community organizations, we thank you for your continued leadership and service to our community as always.

We are deeply concerned about the incident that occurred on the afternoon of March 29 involving a female shopkeeper at a Steveston being splashed with hot coffee. In Richmond, a city which is proud of diversity, the perpetrators openly cursed, saying “F*** Chinese” many times and threw hot coffee on the face of the female cafe staff.

On March 27th and 28th, Richmond, Vancouver, Tri City and other municipalities in this province and across Canada held marches and demonstrations against discrimination against Asians. It is clear that there is a serious issue afflicting our community, an issue that is causing enormous distress to the society and multiple communities in our country.

The perpetrator of the Steveston attack did not do what they did accidentally. According to a video that has been posted online, the male perpetrator had a prior record of hate and discrimination, having been involved in a prior incident where he was reminded by an Asian lady when he was washing his car in an apartment building’s parking lot where it was forbidden to wash cars. At that time too, he used racially discriminatory language to swear, and he didn’t care that the friend of the lady who rushed there later used their mobile phone to film him, still yelling “F*Chinese” at the camera.

If such people who are accustomed to discrimination and using hateful language are not sanctioned by law, they will inevitably become even more brazen. At the same time, this will encourage further discrimination and violence against Asians by others. As you know, there are countless other examples of attacks and discrimination in our community recently. On March 27, a Korean woman on UBC campus was beaten by a stranger; on March 29, an Asian woman in Vancouver was attacked. Malicious videos targeting Asians, including women, are happening frequently, and the current situation is very serious. United Global Chinese Women’s Association of Canada and Canada Sichuanese Friendship Association, along with numerous community based organizations whose names are listed below, are very worried about this situation.

Canada is a country founded upon the values of multiculturalism, openness, and inclusion, and has zero tolerance for racial discrimination. We believe in the values of Canada, and hope that the Richmond RCMP can effectively deal with the hate incident in the cafe and others occurring around us, thereby deterring further acts of hatred against Asians.

Thank you once again for your service to our community.
