加港政治隨筆

【守護港裔身份-加人慎填人口普查】

CENSUS

加拿大聯邦政府換屆後,終於重開荒廢多年的「人口普查」。

作為七八十年代大批移居加國的港人和後代,面對更多大陸移民抵加,有責任趁著這次普查,告訴聯邦政府「香港族群」的存在。因為這將影響港裔的能見度,更將影響政府的眾多文化語言政策,對下一代港裔在加拿大的生存空間,影響深遠。

所以大家在收到通知書後,請務必要仔細填寫,別不小心地「被中國人」。

最重要的幾個項目,是「母語」、「第一所學語言」、「可辨識的少數族裔身分」等等,應填上「廣東話」(Cantonese)而非普通話(Chinese);填「香港人」(HongKonger)而非「中國人」(Chinese)。

長問卷答案指南如下:
