Mayoral candidate Olivia Chow says Canadians in SAR “share shame” at crack-smoker’s antics.
Chow, whose family migrated from Hong Kong to Canada when she was 13, told the South China Morning Post on Tuesday that Toronto residents living in Hong Kong shared the “sense of shame” that came from having a crack-smoking mayor.
The former MP for the left-leaning New Democratic Party (NDP) said Canadian citizens in Hong Kong who were eligible to vote in October’s municipal elections had the chance to restore pride to Toronto.
Would-be overseas voters must register, with applications available via the Elections Canada website or at the Canadian Consulate General. Ballots are sent to registered voters, who must return them by mail to Elections Canada a week before the election date.

I got the tip from a Reuters Press Digest which said that there are “tens of thousands of Torontonians living in Hong Kong.” Really? Why it’s just like a suburb!
