The Choi Project on CKNW’s The Shift with Caroline Chan July 16, 2014

Chinatown is facing a lot of different struggles right now with some of the new developments, so the dynamic and demographic of the people who make up this place are changing but what a lot of people don’t know is that the majority of Chinatown is still low-income seniors and businesses that serve these low-income seniors. One of the things we’re trying to do is help bring more business back to Chinatown and make sure that the people who are moving in here have a chance to [learn how to shop and interact with the community]. And the other thing – our hope – is that businesses that are moving in here, the people that are moving in here, be conscious of the place that it is. Be mindful about how they operate as a business and as an individual because it’s not that Chinatown has to adapt to new people but new people have to respect and think about what it means to be in a place like this.
