(编者按:今天是国际劳动节。江永聪(Justin Kong 是一位反种族主义和劳工权益倡导者,他将代表安省新民主党参选今年的安省省选,以下是贴心姐妹网对他进行的书面专访。)

 

江永聪是将于今年6月举行的安大略省省选士嘉堡北选区(Scarborough North)新民主党候选人。他是平权会多伦多分会前执行总监,在新冠疫情期间,他领导了反针对亚裔种族歧视的倡权工作;他倡导劳工权益,支持小生意和移民生意。他还参与了数个组织,倡导劳工权益和工人的安全工作环境,特别是少数族裔和移民工人的安全工作环境。他于上世纪90年代年幼时和父母移民来加拿大,从多伦多大学获得社会学和亚太研究硕士学位。他和伴侣陈艳(2019年联邦大选新民主党士嘉堡北选区候选人)和他们的的幼女在士嘉堡居住。尽管年幼时来加,他能说国语和粤语。


1. What drove you to run in this upcoming provincial election? 


是什么促使你决定参选今年的省选?


I want to run because I want to continue the work that I had previously done in the community: fight for immigrant workers and small businesses, advance anti-racism in our policies including anti-Asian racism, and ensure that our families have the supports we need to succeed. I have worked on these areas in my prior work as the Executive Director at CCNCTO and for many years as a community and labour organizer, and I want to continue to work on them as an MPP.


我决定参选是因为我要继续我已在社区中开展的工作:为移民劳工和小商户争取权益,推进我们的反种族歧视(包括反针对亚裔种族歧视 )政策;确保我们的家庭们有我们获得成功所需的支持。在担任平权会多伦多分会执行总监期间和多年来作为一名社区组织者和劳工组织者,我已经在这些领域开展了工作,我想以省议员的身份继续这些工作。


2. What qualifications, experiences and perspectives can you bring to the position of MPP? 


你可以为省议员的职位带入什么样的资历和视角?


I bring with me extensive experience working in the community. During the pandemic I lead efforts to support frontline workers in our communities, delivering PPE, essential supplies and ensuring they were able to get their vaccines, benefits and information that they needed. I’ve advocated for paid sick days, increasing the minimum wage and other benefits for workers while also speaking up for small businesses to ensure our economy is one that works for everyone not just the ultra rich. I also lead extensive work around anti-Asian racism pushing our governments and policymakers to address the issue, and spoke out and advocated at the municipal, provincial and national levels to demand our elected officials take action on anti-racism and anti-Asian racism.


我可以带入丰富的社区工作经验。在疫情期间,我领导了支持我们社区前线工人的工作:提供个人防护用品和必需品,确保他们能打到疫苗,获得福利和他们所需的信息。我也倡导有薪病假,提高最低工资以及其它福利。我也为小商户发声,以确保我们的经济能惠及每个人,而不仅仅是巨富者。我也领导了大量敦促政府和决策者消除反亚裔种族歧视的工作。我在市、省和联邦层面都发声和倡权,在反种族歧视和反针对亚裔种族歧视问题上敦促民选议员们采取行动。


3. What challenges do you face as a first-time political candidate? How are you going to overcome them? 


作为首次参选的政党候选人,你面临什么样的挑战?你将如何应对这些挑战?


Being a newcomer to political candidacy is my strength, not my weakness. I’ve worked with people from different backgrounds to take collective action on projects that have advanced community interest and wellbeing of our neighbours.  I’m not a career politician, I’m not in this just to get elected, I’m here to make sure we make changes at the provincial level that works for our families. I’ve spent many years pushing for accountability from our governments, and If I get elected I will do what I have always done, which is fight for our communities here in Scarborough. I won’t back


作为一个政治新秀,这是我的长处,不是我的弱点。我已和来自不同背景的人一起工作,在一些项目上采取了集体行动,改善了社区利益和邻里福祉。我不是一个职业政客,我参选不仅仅是为了当选。我参选是为了确保我们可以在省政府层面带入有利于家庭的改变。多年来我在问责政府,如果我当选了,我会继续做我一直在做的事——为士嘉堡的社区争取利益。我绝不会退缩。


4. What are the main issues that you would like to address in your riding?


在你的选区,你想解决的主要议题是什么?


Affordability, broken healthcare and education systems. It is harder to harder to afford lives for working families here in Scarborough North and Across the province. An NDP government will fight to make sure we building more affordable housing, support first time homebuyers and protect tenants. Healthcare is very broken in Scarborough, we need more language specific support for our healthcare users, funding for healthcare in Scarborough. The liberals and conservatives and oversaw decades of cuts and decline and our systems our broke, an NDP government will fix what is broken. Education—the Conservatives and liberals don’t care about public education and they have overseen drastic cuts to funding. When governments cut education, they are destroying the future of our young people. Everyone deserve quality education regardless of how much money your parents make. 


可支付性,破碎的医疗和教育系统。在士嘉堡北和安省各地,生活都变得越来越难以支付得起。一个当选的新民主党政府将会努力建造能支付得起的住房,支持首次购房者,保护租客。士嘉堡的医疗系统支离破碎,我们需要提供更多能满足有语言障碍使用者需求的服务。经过自由党和保守党几十年来实行的经费削减和带来的衰败,我们的系统已破碎,一个当选的新民主党政府将修复破碎的系统。教育方面,保守党和自由党不在乎公共教育,他们大幅削减了拨款。当政府削减教育经费时,他们在破坏年轻人的未来。每个人都有获取高质量教育的权利,不管他们的父母挣多少钱。

5. If elected, what will you advocate for Ontarians? 


如果当选,你会为安省省民倡导什么?


The liberals and conservatives have broken the things that our communities rely on from unaffordable housing, to the lack of good jobs, to the rising cost of living, and certainly the education and healthcare our families rely on. An NDP Government will fix the things which our families rely.


自由党和保守党打破了我们社区所需要的东西,导致支付不起的住房,好的工作的缺乏,上涨的生活成本,特别是家庭们所依赖的教育和医疗(系统的破碎)。一个当选的新民主政府将修复这些家庭们所需要的东西。


6. Immigrant women face double barriers when they try to establish themselves in Ontario: their previous qualifications and experiences are not recognized; the burden of childcare usually falls on them. How will you and your party address this issue? 


移民女性在安省安居时面临双重障碍:她们移民前的资历得不到承认;家庭中照顾孩子的责任往往由她们承担。你和你的政党会如何解决这个问题?


Immigrant women do some of the most important work in this province, but they have been disrespected and underpaid by successful governments and employers. An NDP government will honour and respect the labour of immigrant women and that means ensuring our credential system is more equitable and pushing forward with strong childcare policies. The NDP has pushed forward key policies on credential recognition and will push forward rapidly for 10$ per day childcare for our families.


移民女性在安省担当重要的工作,她们没有得到执政政府和成功的雇主的尊重和应得的报酬。一个当选的新民主政府将承认和尊重移民女性的劳动,这意味着确保我们的资历认可系统更公平,并推进强健的托儿政策。新民主党已经在资历认可方面推动了重要的政策(安省新民主党计划推出可以让外国受训的医生和护士更容易在安省执业的法案), 也将迅速推动每个家庭每日托儿费10元的政策。
