华裔关荣恩参选省政党高管
Jim Kwan, if elected, will be first Chinese executive in provincial politics

曾经成功阻止万锦市体育馆项目的地方政治监察组织的现任主任关荣恩将于今年3月参选安省保守党秘书职位。Bob Mok撰文指出,如果关荣恩当选,其将成为首位出任安省主要政党高管的华裔。
Jim Kwan, the current director of the local political watchdog that successfully stopped the Markham arena project will be running for the party secretary position for the Provincial Conservative Party in Mar.  As Bob Mok writes, if elected, Kwan will be the first Chinese to occupy an executive position in a major party in Ontario provincial politics.


去年,Patrick Brown在安省保守党党领竞选中击败Christine Elliot,接任安省议会大厦(安省省议会)反对党领袖。

Last year, Patrick Brown won the Provincial Conservative Party race against Christine Elliot and took over as opposition party leader in Queen’s Park (The Provincial Parliament of Ontario). 

 
今年,安省保守党将于3月4日至6日在渥太华的Shaw Centre举行2016年党员大会暨高管选举。届时安省保守党党员将会选出新高管,就宪法修正案进行讨论和表决,并参加重要的培训课程。

This year, the Party will be holding its 2016 General Meeting and Election of Officers at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa on March 4 – 6, 2016. The provincial Party members will elect their new Executive, discuss and vote on constitutional amendments and take part in important training sessions.


现在就着手选拔和组建新的高管团队,可让安省保守党有充分时间凝聚团队成员,确定目的和目标,并为将于2018年春季举行的安省省选做准备。

By selecting and organizing the new Executive team now, the party will have time to unite the team members, set objectives and goals, and prepare for the upcoming provincial election in the Spring of 2018.


安省保守党的高管职位空缺包括:党主席,第1至第9副主席,10个区域副主席,秘书以及财务主管。此外,由10名董事组成的安省保守党基金董事会也会进行选举。

The available positions for Party Executive will include: Party President, 1st to 9th Vice Presidents, ten (10) Regional Vice Presidents, Secretary, and Treasurer. The PC Ontario Fund Board consisting of ten Directors will also be contested.


在过去几个月里,安省保守党党员已经在各选区协会举行的授权人选拔大会(DSM)上选出声誉良好的参会代表。这些代表将前往渥太华参加党员大会,并对候选人进行投票表决。而相关候选人或其代表也都已经在授权人选拔大会上露面,并向与会者和潜在代表介绍了他们的政纲和资历,以争取他们的支持。

Over the last few months, delegates are selected by party members in good standing at Delegate Selection Meetings (DSM) held throughout the riding associations. The delegates will go to the General Meeting in Ottawa and vote for the candidates of their choices. Candidates or their representative also showed up at these DSM’s and present their platforms and qualifications to the attendees and potential delegates to garner their support.

 
在此次选举中,将有一位华裔候选人(关荣恩)参选安省保守党高管职位(党秘书),在我的记忆中这也是首次华裔参选省政党高管。如果关荣恩当选,他将史无前列地成为首位出任安省主要政党高管的华裔。

For the first time in memory, and certainly in this election, a Chinese Candidate (Jim Kwan) will be running for an Executive position (Party Secretary). If Jim is elected, this may well be a breakthrough (first time) for a Chinese to occupy an executive position in a major party in Ontario provincial politics.


关荣恩提议组建一个新的高中协会,以招募年仅14岁的青少年义工,并充分利用他们毕业前的40小时义务工时。换句话说,也就是开始着手组建安省保守党的义工大军。

Jim proposes to form a new High School Association to recruit youth volunteers as young as 14 years old and utilize their 40 volunteer hours before graduation. In other words, it will start building an ARMY of volunteers for the Party.


关荣恩是约克区志愿者协会(YRVA)的创建者。他曾在一年内招募了250名青年党员,并帮助Patrick Brown赢得提名和成功通过补选晋身安省议会。在上次联邦大选中,YRVA协同Zack Goldford(安省保守党青年协会现任主席)平均每周无私贡献了近500小时义务工时。

Jim is founder of the York Region Volunteer Association (YRVA).He recruited 250 youth members within one year and helped in Patrick Brown’s nomination and successful by-election to the Provincial Parliament. The YRVA contributed around 500 volunteer hours per week on average in conjunction with Zack Goldford (current President, Ontario PC Youth Association) during the last federal election.

 
身为专栏作家的关荣恩曾参加2014年万锦市选,目前担任地方政治监察组织——万民问责市府大联盟 (MCCRG)主任。

Jim was a Markham municipal election ward candidate in 2014, a columnist, and a current Director of the local political watchdog – Markham Citizens Coalition for Responsive Government (MCCRG).  


我认识关荣恩已有三年多时间,我们曾经共同携手阻止了万锦市高风险体育馆议案的运动,最终我们的团队战胜重重困难获得成功。和其他一些族裔候选人不同的是,关荣恩的英语极其流利,能够非常自如地应对所有公民,而不仅仅只是局限于华裔。

I know Jim for over 3 years and worked with him on the campaign to stop the high risk Arena Proposal in Markham. Our team eventually succeeded against all odds. Unlike candidates of some other ethnic origin, Jim has an excellent command of the English language and is very comfortable in dealing with all citizens – not just Chinese.


关荣恩并非所谓的“族裔候选人”,全然凭借其特长、热情和个人能力,他可轻而易举地取胜。

Jim is not a “Heritage Candidate” and should prevail based entirely on his merits, enthusiasm, and personal strength.
