John Bermingham, The Province
Published: Sunday, June 17, 2007
A new B.C. political party says it wants to bring a Chinese focus to provincial politics.

The four founders of the party all have such a background. They are Delta realtor and party leader Wei Ping Chen, along with a Burnaby student, a Surrey renovator and a Burnaby tourism guide.

Chen, 48, is a former university teacher in Beijing who came here in 2000. He says mainland Chinese immigrants tend not to vote in B.C. elections and to ignore local politics -- and he wants to change that.

"Some Chinese [say], 'We just focus [on] our family, and that's enough,'" said Chen, who spoke to The Province Friday in the games room of a Richmond condo.

Chen -- who says he has been asked to join the federal Liberals, but turned them down -- said the new party wants to help improve the lot of immigrant workers and to promote Chinese family values and safer communities.
....

Michael Byers, a politics expert at the Liu Institute of Global Issues, says he doesn't have a problem with a Chinese party in B.C.

"These are people exercising their rights in a democratic society," Byers said. "I haven't seen any indications that this party is racist."
"I would be very surprised if they were to elect even a single candidate," Byers said. "This is a clever advocacy ploy."

My hero is Stephen Harper.

He has a quote that goes:

The best social program is still a job.

Lol. Character assassination, once again.
I saw that quote and laughed my ass off. It's sort of the closest real life version to the Simpson's Mr. Burns.
Turns out the real life guy was no where near as bad but he's burdened with the reputation of being a ruthless railroad tycoon.

I was looking for something else but Ned Kelly didn't say much.

Where's the character assassination? It's YOUR sig. All I did was ask the obvious question.

I didn't say he was a hero of mine. Why do you assume I agree with such a silly thing?

Chen should go back and fix his own country instead of trying to make a new china in Canada.

There are alot of things that you agree with that "I" consider over the top. SO I asked for clarification.

Just to make you happy, I changed it to something you should be more comfortable with. :-)

I agree Hwacker. Too bad the RCMP are so disorganized because it would be nice to get the sidewinder project back up and running. I wonder how they feel about Falun Gong members joining?

Between 1924 and 1946, only eight Chinese immigrants entered Canada because of (Liberal) Mackenzie King’s Chinese exclusion law of 1923.

Yes and forming a party based around the Chinese race isn't?
