Jenny in the House: Will the PM stand against anti-Asian racism & address it in national anti-racism strategy, programs?

On March 24 2021 Jenny asked, Will the Prime Minister stand with us by including anti-Asian racism in the national anti-racism strategy, and all the government's anti-racism policies and programs?

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, imagine what it is like being confronted by racial slurs, being spat on, being kicked and punched and being killed.

Racist verbal and physical attacks for Asian Canadians are on a sharp rise. In Vancouver, anti-Asian hate crimes went up 717%. Every attack is aimed at stripping us of our sense of safety and dignity. It is a clear message to say that we are not wanted and we do not belong.

Will the Prime Minister stand with us by including anti-Asian racism in the national anti-racism strategy and in all the government's anti-racism policies and programs?"
