发生在蒙特利尔(加拿大一个城市)的一件辱华事件极其处理结果
    
    事件发生地点:书包厂
      2006年7月11日10点中间休息期间,大家发现餐厅休息间飞虫萦绕,12点午餐时,大部分人只好去室外吃饭。下午1点30分左右,书包厂负责人A和监工B召集所有公司内的中国人开会,并指派了一位公司的中国职员做翻译。A态度恶劣,言语极具侮辱性。在没有任何证据的情况下,言辞激烈地指责中国人弄脏了卫生间和餐厅,并极其恶劣地说了一句“Chinese eat like a pig!”,立刻激怒了所有在场的中国人,绝大多数中国人当即停止工作,离开工厂。<O</O
      2006年7月12日早晨7:50,所有当事中国人聚集在厂区外部,明确提出如下几点要求:<O
      1、 当事人A向全体受到伤害的中国人书面道歉;
      2、 改善就餐环境,指定专人每日清洁;<O
      3、 指定Supervisor,明确工作职责;
      4、 给予适当精神补偿。
      但是当事人A没有到场,仅由其父亲口头道歉,在所谓的道歉中没有“I apologize”或者“I am sorry”之类的言语。因为他年事已高,本着尊重他的态度我们没有计较。我们要求他对以上四点要求给以明确答复。他同意我们的第二,三条要求,但对第一,四条要求予以拒绝。
      我们是勤奋工作的中国移民,我们用我们的汗水为我们的新的家园贡献我们的力量,就在我们流汗的同时A用很恶劣的语言诋毁中国人,极大地伤害了我们的民族自尊心。是可忍,孰不可忍?
    
    结果,上诉到加拿大人权法庭,当事人判罚164000加币,在场听到辱骂的15个中国人每人获赔1万加币。
    
    Montreal September 23, 2009 ---
    
    Fifteen Chinese workers at a Montreal manufacturing company should receive $164,000 in damages for having been racially discriminated against on the job, the Quebec Human Rights and Youth Rights Commission ruled in a decision issued last week.
    
    In July 2006, approximately 40 Chinese workers at Calego International Inc., a Montreal-based manufacturer specializing in childrens backpacks and accessories, received an order to gather and meet company president Stephen Rapps, who blamed them for unsanitory work conditions.
    
    
    According to the workers, the latter also said that they were no longer in China, that they must wash themselves daily and that “You Chinese eat like pigs.” Outraged by the comments, two workers objected and were
    physically assaulted by a supervisor.
    
    Insulted by the comments, many Chinese workers immedialtely walked out and came back the day after with a list of conditions, including a written apology from the president, clean working conditions and compensation for violation of their dignity. When the company refused to comply with these demands, many workers immediately quit their jobs.
    
    In a civil rights complaint filed with the human rights commission on behalf of the 15 workers, CRARR claimed that they had been singled out (as workers of other ethnic backgrounds were not) and exposed to race-based slurs. It asked $10,000 in moral and punitive damages for each worker, $5,000 for each of the two assaulted workers, and a written apology for all workers as well as the Montreal Chinese community.
    
    In its decision forwarded to the parties last week, the Commission ruled that these workers were indeed subject to racially discriminatory conditions in their work and recommends $10,000 for each of the 15 workers, an additional $7,000 for each of the two assaulted workers, and workplace measures to respect employees civil rights. In total, Calego International, its president, a supervisor and the latters company, Agence Vincent, are ordered to pay $164,000.
    
    It is the largest sum ever recommended by the Commission for a racism case in Quebec.
    
    For Ms. X. Ma, one of the 15 workers, “Its a matter of pride and dignity for all Chinese workers and immigrant workers in Quebec as well as in the rest of Canada. Just because we are Chinese and new to this country does not mean we have no civil rights protections.”
    
    According to Mr. H. Yong, another worker, “This is actually a great victory for Chinese people everywhere. Governments and people around the world should not support any Canadian company that treats its Chinese workers like slaves, and that refuses to apolologize and compensate them for its racially discriminatory practices.”
    
    
    
    According to CRARRs Executive Director Fo Niemi, “This decision sends a very powerful message to all employers in Quebec, especially those in the manufacturing sector where immigrant labor is important: in the age of global trade, racism in employment can be costly.”
    
    
    This decision is also important to Chinese Montrealers (at 83,000, according to the Census of 2006) and those of other Asia-Pacific origins (at 73,000), who rarely take legal action against racial discrimination.
    “We hope that with our actions, we have shown to all Chinese and other Asian people in Montreal that one should never be afraid to stand up for ones civil rights and file complaints to fight racism,” said Mr. Y. He, one of the two assaulted workers.
    
    
    
    All four respondents have until October 2 to comply with the Commissions recommendation, failing which the case will be brought before the Quebec Human Rights Tribunal.
    
    Information: Fo Niemi
    Executive Director, CRARR

  就算在中国的外资企业,一个外国老板骂了中国员工eat like pig也没得钱赔,亏得有些人还口口声声说出国做二等国民,好象呆在自己的国家就能做一等国民似的

  以前有个日本人在夏威夷渡假被椰子砸死,妻子到法庭控告当地政府,被判败诉.当时日本人的社会地位不高.
  
  该妻子N年后又坚持上诉,多次败诉.
  
  直到日本人收购了夏威夷N多房产的某一天,法院更改判决,赔偿N百万美金,并采取手段让那地段的椰子绝育.
  
  国家强大,国民在海外才有地位.甚至不需要使馆特别去做什么

  不同意这种看法,其他国家不知道,但加拿大是以多元文化为国策,只要是合理的诉求,法院和陪审团并不会因为你的出生国是否富裕而影响平等。

  在国外叫人权,在国内叫人玩权,制度的不同产生不同的结果。
