Five members of Saskatoon Canada-China Friendship Association (SCCFA) attended a rally on June 14, 2020, in Saskatoon. This rally was organized by Saskatoon Chinese community, aiming to fight against COVID-19 related racism on Chinese community. This comes after a 15-year-old Chinese boy was allegedly attacked by an adult who claimed that Chinese spread the virus.
At the beginning of the rally, Ms. Allison Hill, secretary of SCCFA, was invited to make a speech. Other guests who spoke including Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission, Mayor of Saskatoon city, city councilor etc.. The rally was well planned and well organized with about 200 people attended, including some Caucasian, first nations, Malaysia Chinese, people from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Attendees first gathered at Kinsman Park, walked to City Hall, and came back by the river trail. The whole walk was peaceful and enjoyable, with lots of supports from people driving by. SCCFA totally supports anti-racism and our members had a great time. This is also a great chance of our members to make new Chinese friends, practice language, thus promoting friendship between the people of Canada and China.
