from a business point of view... MM design is actually making boat loads of money from these people..

i mean look at how many customers have gotten spotted over this year or so....


bet the guy doing the wrap and starting the whole thing is like making money. who gives a flying fuck about customer taste. cant really criticize customers when you want steady business coming in. just do good work and not question their taste.

Of all the problems we have to deal with, we are actually focusing on other people being proud and vibrant of their homeland/nationality, culture/religion?

Like honestly, people putting stickers on their cars to say they're from China is such a bad thing for Canada? If anything, it helps show how diverse the people from Canada are. Canada isn't about ASSIMILATION, it's about DIVERSITY. People from all walks of life, all parts of the world, can live in Canada without having to give up their roots. That's the beauty of being in Canada. If these people want to be proud of where they CAME from, by all means, let them. Let them show it off...Because really, it has ZERO affect on us.

What they're doing isn't hate speech, it isn't racism or discrimination, and they're not being prejudice. They're simply showing WHO they are. Why do we even bother discussing something like that?

This is Canada, there is no his country, her country, OUR country. When you look at it legitimately, this land belongs to people who are barely acknowledged. First nations people are the ones who had this land before Europeans settled. Now we call it Canada, a place where I'm proud to be from and feel comfortable because of the mix of people here.

I just find it ridiculous that we keep finding these threads devoted to Chinese people who live here and aren't saying a thing to anyone else (maybe because they don't know English) yet we are trying to force them to be something that WE define as Canadian. Canada is simply diverse and multicultural, there is nothing else that defines Canada. Multiculturalism enables people to be defined and addressed by the various groups they belong to. We can't say we're multicultural and at the same time say we have to have a CANADIAN identity amongst all citizens. Then we're not multicultural. Multicultural means that we cannot have any central (in this case "Canadian") values.

Talking about how ugly these cars are, what lack of taste their owners have and how you would've designed it differently is one thing. But to sit here and say that the owners of these vehicles aren't living the way of Canadian life is ignorance in my opinion. We ask the members of our country to be multicultural, not to assimilate. If we now want assimilation, then we might as well be considered the same as Quebec.

I find it odd that people live in Canada for decades, don't speak English and expect everyone in Richmond to be able to communicate with them.

That explains my confusion.

@Skinny - all makes sense now, I retract my confusion in the prior post.

You should be thrown into south central LA and wear a shirt that says "if your black and cant speak african your a joke" and see how long you will last.

you can have diversity AND assimilation...no one is asking you to drop your roots. If you want to live in a cultural bubble within vancouver, fine. But don't expect anyone to cater to you when you only have the bare minimal English communication skills.

This post reminds me of a little article i read few months ago when locals wanted to bid for Vancouver to designate a Pinoy Town...much like Punjabi District, Chinatown, Little Italy.

Which is fine. But if I put a huge ass Brazilian flag on my car, and painted it blue yellow and green, it would look hideous, right?

The car is hideous. Money can't buy taste. What else is new?

The OP is clearly hating on Chinese kids with too much money.

If this is a Google or Babelfish Translation, it is incorrect in so many ways.
