– “Candidates in Support of Chinese Head Tax
The BC Coalition of Head Tax Payers,
Their Spouses and Descendants is organizing a media event – “Candidates in
Support of Chinese Head Tax Redress”. Candidates of all parties running in
11 Lower Mainland ridings with significant Chinese population are invited to
participate in a signing ceremony to declare their support for the demand of a
just and honorable Chinese Head Tax Redress. Seniors of the
Coalition and the media are invited to witness the signing. Attached is the
Support Statement to be signed.
The objective of the event is to let
the general public know which candidates support the redress demands and who do
not. This information will serve as one of the important considering
factors in their voting.
