Cancel New Year parade? No way in hell, say Chinese

Cancel New Year parade? No way in hell, say Chinese

Vancouver's Chinese community had a defiant message for Winter Olympics organizers when it was suggested they should cancel their longstanding Lunar New Year parade - 'no way in hell'.
The city's 36th annual parade, which will usher in the Year of the Tiger, will go ahead as planned on Feb. 14, two days after the start of the February 12-28 Olympics.
City councilor Kerry Jang said there had initially been suggestions from VANOC, the Olympics organizing committee, to either cancel or postpone the parade "over security and other concerns." "The Chinese community said no way in hell'," said Jang, a third-generation Chinese-Canadian.
