VICTORIA – B.C. New Democrat Leader John Horgan issued the following statement about racist flyers being distributed to Richmond homes:
“I am angered and saddened by reports of racist flyers being distributed to homes in Richmond.
“I hope that I speak for people of every political stripe in British Columbia when I say there is no room for these hateful acts in British Columbia.
“All members of the legislature recently stood together to condemn hateful and racist policies of the past – policies like the head tax.
“We must not allow similar acts to take root in the present. It is up to all of us to stand up and say no to hate.”
