MPP Ke PMB, Bill 34, An Act to proclaim May as Anti-Asian Racism Education Month

People of Asian heritage have experienced a heightened rate of race-related incidents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Asian Canadians have long been viewed as foreigners and outsiders and are easy targets for people to direct their frustration and anger.

By proclaiming May as Anti-Asian Racism Education Month, Province of Ontario honours the proud contributions, storied history, and sacrifices made by Canadians of Asian heritage in building this country, and it will help to combat the problem and eliminate anti-Asian racism in our schools, our communities and our Province.
