Canada continues to make important strides toward more equality. But there are storm clouds on the horizon that endanger the continuing pursuit of true equality. What started as a legitimate change to bring about equality and transformation of how we viewed, treated and spoke about each other has now ossified into a rarely breached wall of silence, a silence reinforced by the onset of the West's indifference to its own good, bad or ugly -- but distinct -- societies, their values and norms. Call it white man's burden or guilt, a guilt for the sins of the past now manifesting itself in the white man's fear.

Why Chineseness Can Matter When Reporting On Vancouver

Ian Young

My frequent use of "Chinese" as an ethnic or cultural descriptor has variously resulted in accusations that I am anti-Chinese, pro-Chinese, anti-Canadian, or even anti-Hongkonger. So why mention when someone is (ahem) Chinese to any extent, ethnically, culturally, or by birth?
