There has been much debate in the last twelve months in Richmond about Chinese only signs, and the local council has been trying to win a pointless battle to get those business owners to get some English on these signs. I am not sure why, maybe the fear of missing out?

We also found out yesterday that Chinese only signs aren’t as rampant as the city might lead you to believe. In total, there are thirteen signs that the city is worried about… Thirteen.
Here’s my rant about those signs, and why we have better things to be arguing about.
