Anti-Chinese Canadian action?

In Uncategorized on 25/06/2019 at 5:05 am

Canada is the first G20 country to ban shark fin trade.

Guess what’s the reaction?

“The shark fin ban is just a gimmick to gain political capital,” says Ben Leung, who is active in the Chinese immigrant community in Canada.

He criticises the ban, arguing it targets Asian culinary culture, while providing little actual help to protecting sharks.

Mr Leung expects the ban’s impact on Asian restaurants in Canada to be “limited”, as it had been long expected.

Given that Leung expects the ban’s impact to be limited, he’s the grand-stander.

Btw, the BBC article says that since 2013, official Chinese government functions stopped having the dish in any form.
