It will be an historic day at the provincial legislature tomorrow (Thursday), as politicians deliver an apology to Chinese-Canadians for racist policies of the past.
Premier Christy Clark says the statement has been approved by all parties.
“We’ve worked very hard with the NDP and the Greens and the independent members to try and formulate the nature, kind of the content of the apology. Nothing is ever perfect, I don’t think you can ever do anything that everybody agrees with, but I do think there’s a really broad level of support for this apology, and it is about time.”
While Clark has previously said the apology will not include compensation for the discriminatory Chinese head tax, she now won’t say if Thursday’s statement comes with cash.
