Debate over Chinese only signs back before Richmond City Council

A Richmond City Councillor says he’s open to hearing from two residents who are concerned about the amount of Chinese signage in the city.
 
Chak Au says council could revist the issue — as two women, armed with a petition, are set to make a presentation on Monday saying there is too much Chinese-only signage.
 
“I’m open on this one because I think if we have one sector of the community feeling not comfortable when they go to certain parts of our city, and feel overwhelmed by some Chinese signs, I think we have to address it.”

 He says if necessary, he will help refer it to staff for a report.  
 
Fellow Councillor Derek Dang says a committee has looked at the issue before and found no reason to changes, but adds he’s also open to hearing from the two presenters.
