Korean: Four Korean-Canadian candidates in Toronto alone
Toronto’s daily source, The Korea Times Daily, reports:
Diversity is at its peak for the Canadian federal election as a record-high number of candidates from the Korean community are running for office this fall. There are currently four Korean-Canadian candidates alone, including Mae J. Nam, who was appointed by the Beaches-East York NDP riding association. Meanwhile, the Toronto-Danforth NDP riding association selected Min Sook Lee as its candidate. All four Korean-Canadian candidates are children of immigrants and three of them are women and NDP candidates, which illustrates a shift in generations of the community. (07/06/2019)
