Richmond has garnered a fair amount of regional and national media attention in recent years as a result of the local debate about Chinese-language signs. Something that has been overlooked is another set of signs that can be found in the downtown area. At least three of these posters, which read “Conservative Party of Canada is Anti-Immigrant,” can be found in the downtown core. One is located across from the Richmond Public Market on Buswell Street; the other is located next to the Subway at Westminster and No. 3 Road; a third is found in front of the CIBC building.
The posters do not contain any contact information or affiliation. According to a story by the Vancouver Media Co-op, these same posters were posted on the office of Conservative MP for Vancouver South Wai Young in 2012. If you have any information about the origins of these posters, please leave a comment.
