    Literally a tour bus full of visitors from Mainland China getting a guided tour of our real estate.

    I think people see Asians at an open house or presentation centre and just make assumptions. They could easily be born here. They could be Korean, Japanese or Vietnamese.

    @Kimchi Wong that's definitely the case most of the time but I don't think it applies to this particular incident, although I did not take the pictures so can't be sure.

    It speaks to society's racism and ignorance when a white guy immigrating from Australia or the UK can be instantly recognized as a Canadian in the public's eye but a 5th generation Canadian of Asian descent gets branded as a foreigner and told to go back to China. Chinese people have been in British Columbia since 1788 and started appearing in larger numbers in the 1850s, before BC was even a colony under British rule.
