Welcome

Renaming the park and parkade

The City is renaming this site on the boundary of Chinatown to acknowledge racial discrimination against Chinese Calgarians. It is a step towards becoming a more inclusive city.

From its founding in 1885, Chinatown has been in three different locations in Calgary. Displacement and racial discrimination against Chinese Calgarians forced the community to move as they struggled to set down roots. Anti-Chinese views that were widely held in Calgary, along with the federal government’s Chinese Head Tax and Exclusion Act, made life very difficult for Chinese community members.

One of the many people whose words and actions harmed the Chinese community is James Short – a leader in Calgary who petitioned against the construction of the first Chinese-owned commercial building in 1910. When the park and parkade were named after him in 1991, his racist words and actions were not considered.

第二階段:重新命名 James Short 公園及停車場

第二階段:重新命名公園及停車場

市政府正在重新命名位於唐人街邊界的這個場地,以承認歷史上針對卡加利華人的種族歧視,向更包容的城市邁進。

自 1885 年創建以來,卡加利共有三處唐人街。針對卡加利華人的逼遷及種族歧視迫使該社區在努力紮根的過程中不斷遷徙。一度在卡加利盛行的反華觀點,以及聯邦政府的華人人頭稅和排華法案,都使華人社區成員的生活非常艱難。

許多人的言行都曾傷害過華人群體,James Short 也是其中一員。作為卡加利的領導者之一,他曾於 1910 年請願反對興建首座由華人所有的商業建築。1991 年命名該公園及停車場時,James Short 的種族主義言行並未得到考慮。

第二阶段:为该公园及停车场改名

市政府正在重新命名位于唐人街边界的这一地点,以承认历史上针对卡尔加里华人的种族歧视,向更包容的城市迈进。

从 1885 年成立以来,卡尔加里共有三处唐人街。对卡尔加里华人的逼迁和种族歧视迫使该社区在努力扎根的过程中不断迁徙。一度在卡尔加里盛行的反华观点,以及联邦政府的华人人头税和排华法案,都使华人社区成员的生活非常艰难。

许多人的言行都曾伤害过华人群体,James Short 也是其中一员。作为卡尔加里的领导者之一,他曾于 1910 年请愿反对修建首座由华人所有的商业建筑。1991 年命名该公园及停车场时,James Short 的种族歧視言行并未得到考量。
