Listening to our seniors’ needs in Ward 2
聆聽第二區長者的聲音

Today at a community event organized by FengCai Seniors Association, I met with more than 50 senior residents at the Buttonville Public School in Markham Ward 2. The organizer of the event Ms. Hu emphasized the importance for us to help the elderly population to fight off the surge of financial fraud and telephone scam that have been targeting our seniors. As an experienced organizer of our Markham community, I will continue to organize free workshops and sessions to educate our seniors about scams and how to prevent them.
今天楓彩老人活動中心舉辦了一場聚會,我和超過五十個長者居民們在我們二區Buttonville學校裏面見面。楓彩的會長胡碧華女士重點提及很多老人家成爲金融錢財欺詐及電話詐騙受害者的問題,很多不法之徒是針對老人作案。作爲一個富有經驗的活動組織者,我會繼續安排免費講座,義務幫助和教導老人家如何面對金錢欺詐,以後不再受騙。

My mother Amy was a dedicated social worker. She worked for youth, disabled and senior non-profit organizations for more than 20 years. She had so much passion on community service that she continued to do volunteer work after she retired. Like my mother, I have been a volunteer since I was a child and I have experience on improving the quality of our senior’s daily lives. I emphasized to my Ward 2 senior residents that, even before running for City Councillor, I have helped hundreds of seniors in Markham Ward 2. During the pandemic, I provided technical support on the computer and helped more than 500 seniors to get their Vaccine QR code. I also distributed hundreds of rapid test kits to our Ward 2 residents. I have already been actively involved in giving back and servicing our seniors even before running for City Councillor. Therefore, I look forward to be able to do even more when elected as the next Ward 2 City Councillor for Markham.

我的媽媽Amy年輕的時候也曾經是一位社會工作者,曾從事社會工作近二十多年,包括青少年,傷健,老人服務等多個非牟利志願社會服務機構,退休前在老人社區服務,並任職社區教育主任。她在退休之後更繼續在多個非牟利機構做義工。受到媽媽的影響,我從小就做義工,並對改善老人家的生活質素富有熱誠和經驗。我强調,我在競選市議員之前已經不斷為萬錦市及第二區的長者服務。在疫情期間,我為超過500名長者提供技術支援,用電腦幫助他們拿到疫苗護照。我也積極地做義工,幫助派發了數百個快速測試給第二區的居民。在參選之前,我已經積極地在回饋社區及服務長者,當我選上萬錦市第二區市議員,我將會更有能力為長者提供更美好的生活。

Lastly, as I mentioned many times before. There is certainly a lack of recreational spaces in Ward 2 for seniors to organize social events, especially during winter times, and that will be something I will be relentlessly fighting for in the City Council. #VoteRitch #Ward2OneFam #Markham

最後,我已經多次講過,第二區缺乏足夠的社區設施讓長者協會舉辦活動,特別實在寒冷的冬天裏面問題尤其嚴重。這是我會在當選之後,在市議會努力為長者爭取的權益。
