多伦多9千家长签名 华人家长在网上建议签名请愿要求隔离 教育局担心种族主义
1月25日,安省卫生部门宣布加拿大首例确诊病例后,约克区华人家长自发在网上建议签名请愿,呼吁教育局要求近期从中国返回的学生和家长向校方报告,并自觉留在家中,隔离至少17天。这份请愿截止1月28日上午,已经有9000多人签名。而约克区教育局也终于回应了。

教育局于本周向家长们发出一封信,除了提醒做好防疫以外,还指出另一种病毒:反华仇外。
教育局董事务主席Juanita Nathan写道:“我们了解华裔家庭的担心和焦虑加重,那些假设其他人有风险,要求隔离的人,即使是出于好意和安全考虑,也可以被看作是偏见和种族主义。”

虽然加拿大卫生官员一直强调感染的风险仍低,但是民众已经出现类似2003年SARS疫情时的恐慌。
在2004年一份关于SARS对加拿大华人社区影响的报告中,大多伦多华裔和东南亚裔法律援助中心的总监吴瑶瑶指出,不少华人因为SARS受影响,如餐馆生意下降令许多人失去工作,移民难民局官员在面对亚裔投诉者听证时戴起口罩,华人租客遭房东驱逐等。
不过令吴瑶瑶失望的是,2007年的安省关于SARS危机的听证报告认为没有种族歧视。她说,有关如何应对种族主义言论的建议,在此类疫情爆发的时候将会有帮助。
多伦多华阜商业促进区主席Tonny Loui上周六在春节庆祝活动中因为嗓子痛,不得不解释他只是感冒,不是病毒。第二天,他发现唐人街的生意变淡了,包括许多餐馆,相信都是因为害怕病毒。他重申社区和食物仍然安全,并呼吁议员们学习2003年SARS爆发时前总理克里斯蒂(Jean Chretien)到中餐馆就餐的做法,向加拿大人展示仍然安全。
吴瑶瑶女士充分相信加拿大的卫生保健系统拥有比SARS时期更好的应对能力,但是她对如何遏制公众的恐惧并不乐观。
她说:“不幸的是,由于加拿大社会潜在的种族主义态度,不管科学证据显示疾病是如何被遏制的,人们仍然相信他们所相信的。”

Canada's Chinese community battles racism amid coronavirus outbreak
When Toronto resident Terri Chu tweeted that she and other Chinese mothers feared the “inevitable wave of racism” that would accompany the spread of coronavirus around the world, she didn’t realize how visceral the reactions would be.
“My Twitter has just exploded with vitriol since this morning,” she said on Tuesday. “But it’s just par for the course, growing up as a minority when you’re not part of a dominant class.”


Canada has so far seen three confirmed cases of the virus, which originated in China, but members of the country’s Chinese community have already become the target of racist backlash.
The country saw a similar wave of xenophobia during 2003 Sars outbreak, which also started in China.
During that panic, many Chinese-run businesses in Canada took steep losses as fear overrode public health advice: Toronto lost an estimated C$1bn as residents and tourists avoided the city, especially areas with a high concentration of Chinese businesses.
The irrational public worry that paralyzed much of the city seems to be returning, said Amy Go, the interim president of the Chinese Canadian National Council for Social Justice.
“I was hopeful it wasn’t going to be like 2003. But it’s is. It’s happening now and it’s just going to be amplified [by social media].”
When a popular Toronto blog, reviewed a new Chinese restaurant on Instagram on Monday, the post quickly received a torrent of racist comments.
And nearly 9,000 parents in the York school district – an area north of Toronto – signed a petition demanding students who had traveled to China in the last 17 days be prevented from attending school.
“This has to stop. Stop eating wild animals and then infecting everyone around you,” wrote one petition signer. “Stop the spread and quarantine yourselves or go back.”
On Monday, the board – which represents 208 schools – condemned the petition amid fears students will be targeted based on their ethnicity.
“We are aware of an escalated level of concern and anxiety among families of Chinese heritage,” wrote York board chair Juanita Nathan and education director Louise Sirisko. “Individuals who make assumptions, even with positive intentions of safety, about the risk of others, request or demand quarantine can be seen as demonstrating bias and racism.”
Chu argued that fears about coronavirus are disproportionate.
“Air pollution and the proliferation of STDs are far greater public health risk to my kids than the coronavirus right now – it’s being completely blown out of proportion,” she said. The total death toll of Sars in Canada was 44, she said. “Last year in Toronto, 41 people got hit by cars.”
Racist responses have also been seen in other countries with Chinese diaspora communities. In Australia, Queensland MP Duncan Pegg warned residents of false health bulletins circulating online that stoked fear of communities with high proportions Asian residents.
But Chu also said that the reactions in Canada – which includes some of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world – expose a current of everyday racism which is always present.
“Two or three months from now, the coronavirus will likely be gone. But this is not just a public health issue. This is an issue of racism in Canada. “The best thing to come from this – the best impact – would be people collectively learning that we can do better.”

你把“大家”换成“华人”就准确了。
