大中报采访渔人村安省自由党党内候选人杨绮清
Chinese News interviews Ontario Liberal Candidate in Unionville riding

 
 
 
安省渔人村选区自由党候选人提名大会将于2017年8月27日召开。该选区的安省进步保守党尚未确定提名大会的日期。该选区的边界于2015年联邦大选时重新界定,加拿大联邦进步保守党候选人蔡报国赢得该选区国会议员席位。

The Unionville riding provincial election (Liberal Party) candidate nomination meeting is scheduled for August 27, 2017. The Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario has yet to set a date for their nomination meeting. The Unionville riding boundaries were remapped in 2015 for the Federal Election and won by the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada candidate Bob Saroya.

 
渔人村是安省的一个新选区。该区57%的选民为华裔。这个选区族裔选票特别高,2018年的省选情况也会是这样,即华裔选民倾向把选票投给华裔候选人。目前有两个华裔在竞选安省自由党提名人,一个是万锦市第6选区的现任市议员杨绮清,一个是金融企业家孙晓明。

Unionville is now a new provincial riding with 57% of Chinese constituents. The heritage vote factor is high and strongly favours a candidate of Chinese origin in the upcoming provincial election in 2018. There are two Liberal Party nominees of Chinese origin fighting to represent the Liberal Party in that contest – Markham Ward#6 councillor Amanda Yeung Collucci and financial entrepreneur Sophia Sun.

 
大中报专栏作家Bob Mok最近采访了杨绮清。孙晓明没有接受大中报的采访邀请。以下是采访的摘录。
Chinese News columnist Bob Mok interviewed Councillor Amanda Yeung Collucci recently. Following is an excerpt from that interview. Sophia Sun declined an interview with Chinese News.

 
问:你为什么认为自己符合省议员的条件?
Q: Why do you think you qualify as a MPP?

 
答:这个职位需要良好的沟通技巧,人际关系技巧,对选区问题的了解,熟悉政府政策,以及与选民合作的能力。我相信我拥有这些技能。
A: The position requires excellent communications skills, interpersonal skills, issues awareness, familiarity with government policies, and the ability to work with constituents. I believe that I possess those skills.

 
问:你为什么要当省议员?
Q: Why do you want to be a MPP?

 
答:我已经是万锦市第6选区的市议员了。我喜欢和公众打交道,解决问题。市级政府无法解决的问题,必须由省府出面解决。这些问题包括:可持续的住房开发(包括人们能够承受的住房和老年公寓),公交系统和交通堵塞问题。此外,我的那些市政选区里的选民敦促我竞选省议员。
A: I was elected to Markham City Council to represent Ward 6 residents. I enjoy dealing with the public and solving their problems. Issues that cannot be solved at the municipal level will have to be dealt with at the provincial level. These include but not limited to: sustainable housing (which include:  affordable housing, and senior housing), transit, and traffic issues. Also, the residents in my ward are urging me to contest for the job of MPP.

 
问:你对“族裔投票”的看法是什么?
Q: What is your view on “Heritage Votes”?

 
答:我不了解族裔投票。所有候选人必须平等对待。候选人和省议员都应该为选区里的所有选民服务,而不是倾向服务一个族裔。
A: I am not aware of Heritage Votes. All candidates must be treated equally. Candidate and MPP should work for all constituents within the riding and not catered to any one heritage groups.

 
问:你对党内提名人为获得提名而进入公寓拉票行为如何看?
Q: What is your understanding on access rights to Condominium apartments as a nominee for candidacy?

 
答:任何被提名人的工作是理解和遵守现有的法律。如果不了解或遵守法律,他们就不配得到公众的支持来参加党内竞选。我们必须尊重这些公寓内居民的隐私。如果有被提名人未经许可试图进入公寓拉票,这说明他们将个人利益放在公共利益之上。
A: The job of any nominee is to understand and follow the applicable laws. If they do not understand or abide by the laws, then they do not deserve any public support for their candidacy. We must respect the privacy of residents in these buildings.
If there are nominees who tried to gain access without permission, then they are putting their personal interests ahead of public interests.

 
问:你有没有或你将寻求陈国治的支持?
Q: Have you, or will you get any endorsements from Ontario Minister Michael Chan?

 
答:我还没有找他支持我。我甚至没有想过这个问题。我得到了万锦市长Frank Scarpitti和Nirmala Armstrong的支持,他们都熟悉我在市议会里的工作和成就。另外,我得到了万锦省议员Helena Jaczek和烈志文山省议员Reza Moridi的支持。
A: I have not approached him for any endorsement. I have not even thought about this. I have endorsements from Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti and Nirmala Armstrong who are familiar with my work and achievements in the Council. I also have an endorsement from a local MPP Helena Jaczek and Richmond Hill MPP Reza Moridi.

 
问:如果你不能当选省议员,你还会参加2018年的市政选举吗?
Q: If you are unsuccessful with becoming a MPP, will you run again in the Municipal Election in 2018?

 
答:我喜欢第6选区的市议员工作。如果有机会,我还会参加市议员竞选,为选区内的居民服务。
A: I enjoy my job as Ward 6 Councillor. I will run and serve my residents if that opportunity is available.
