I, along with a number of experts, spoke on a panel about racially-charged sentiments being broadcast in media, and many of the incidents against newcomers in Canada, and what these sentiments and events mean for BC – how local communities can heal from racism and what immigrants have to offer to our province.
The panel of experts included:
Dr. Gurdeep Parhar, executive associate dean, clinical partnerships & professionalism, faculty of medicine, University of British Columbia
Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, Reconciliation Canada ambassador
Senator Yuen Pau Woo
Christine Brodie, education consultant
Judith Bosire, consultant, MNP LLP
Sarah Al-Qaysi, program assistant, SUCCESS
