Montreal city council unanimously denounces anti-Asian racism

Community groups and the Center for Research and Race Relations ask Montreal city council to “unanimously and vigorously denounce acts of hatred, discrimination, and violence directed against Montrealers of various Asian origins” since the start of the pandemic. Council voted in favour of the motion on June 16, 2020.

“This is a very, very powerful message that the city council has sent to everyone in the city, but also to other Canadian cities as well, and I hope this will encourage other cities to do the same.”
