Stand With Asians Coalition Petition
Recirculated from SWAC/ MP Peter Julian petition-take action!
STAND WITH ASIANS COALITION (SWAC) IS CALLING ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO TAKE PRACTICAL AND CLEAR STEPS TO COMBAT HATE, PROTECT VICTIMS OF HATE CRIMES AND STRENGTHEN LEGISLATION TO GUARD AGAINST HATE SPEECH AND HATEFUL MESSAGES.
As part of its efforts to combat a “staggering increase in anti-Asian racism” in Canada, Stand With Asians Coalition (SWAC) is calling on the House of Commons to take six concrete steps. These steps are clearly outlined in a parliamentary petition launched on June 17 and sponsored by New Westminster – Burnaby MP Peter Julian. This petition was partly inspired by MP Peter Julian’s parliamentary motion M-84 – Anti-Hate Crimes and Incidents.
