Misjudging the scale and influence of cultural/racial/economic phenomena to make your prejudice sound reasonable is a waste of words.
Who is it that says "cities should strive to be multicultural?" Those places that are multicultural/racial have become so for a complex of immigration factors . . . none of which include striving to be a certain way. Canada's policies about this come from the way our country has developed over its history. They are more of a reaction to our history and an acknowledgment of the reality of the country than any striving by some boogie class.
The little diatribe about the "bad" Chinese, so guilty of ruining our real estate market, and driving like asses in their luxury cars . . . . well, I know there is a small bit of truth to this (GlassCity's kernal of truth), but most Vancouverites know better than to exaggerate these things into nonsense. To claim "irreparable damage to racial relations in the city" is laughable.
Please, all of you who are not from Vancouver, do not read ssiguy's posts as meaning much: they are most often just rants, mild bigotry, and self-satisfyied justifications.
