It is only obvious that companies would cater to people of Chinese descent

Re: “Chinese crest ad draws criticism.”

I’m surprised to read about criticism with regards to Chinese language advertisement in this city, of all places. There are about 90,000 people of Chinese descent here. It is only obvious companies would cater to them. The fact that I can’t read it isn’t their issue here, but rather that all these people brush their teeth too! I’m form Montreal and found much more silly the idea that “there’s parts of this country where there would be a war if it wasn’t in French!” There is alot more racism here than there, and I lived there 30 years, enough to know about it, and 18 here, enough to know about that.

My spouse is Asian and nobody spit on us when we walked outdoors there on Canada Day, unlike here, where it happened twice.

All comments and debates welcome.
