印第安人怎樣參政爭取權益

最近在英屬哥倫比亞省的甘祿市(Kamloops)已關閉的印第安人寄宿學校,發現了215具兒童的遺骨,事件震動全世界。我有同事、朋友、學生是印第安人,有些已有50年的友情,不禁哀傷到不能發言。英國的海軍軍官孟齊斯(Gavin Menzies)考據,鄭和比哥倫布早70年到北美洲,但中國以王道行天下,並沒有對印第安人滅族。哥倫布到後,把男的印第安人抓去開礦,女的抓去送給部下做禮物。加拿大的白種人,如賣一枝長槍給印第安人,要一堆與長槍一樣高的皮草,賣毛氈則故意沾上天花菌使印第安人死亡。東部沿海的印第安人,殺到絕種。每年6月21日是「國家原住民日」(National Indigenous Peoples Day),目的是推廣加拿大原住民文化,以及紀念原住民為建設加拿大的貢獻。我發表此文,以悼念不幸死去的215名印第安人兒童。

We are deeply concerned about China’s imposition of the National Security Law and, more broadly, the deteriorating human rights situation in Hong Kong.

正视加拿大英裔人的种族歧视

有华裔参选,去选民家拍门拉票。常有英裔人不开门,或是态度傲慢无礼。有次正逢联邦选举,“加拿大华裔参政同盟”大派传单,呼吁华裔投票,上面写了我的名字为联络人。马上有英裔人打电话来骂我说:“这是英语国家,为什么要派发有中文的传单?”华裔候选人的宣传文件,若不慎落到英裔人家,也常发生同样事情。邹至蕙竞选多伦多市长时有人大喝:“滚回中国!”那人名叫Earl Cowan,从名字看来是英裔人。我们华裔在加拿大150多年,在这土地上洒了我们的血,流了我们的泪。没有人能把我们赶走。而且,我们坚持享有加拿大人所有的权利,包括选举权和参选权。
