Most candidates may felt the Chinese topic is too sensitive. But I can not ignore this. Most Chinese residents and businesses felt being squeezed in the middle. They choose to call Australia home. I can say on their behalf that their values, business practices and hopes are the same as every Melbournians. Hence, we see so many candidates of Chinese descent in this election. We are in the pandemic together and we will work hard in the recovery just like all Chinese did since the gold rush. Never doubt our hard work and innovation. Every candidate you see of Chinese descent works even much harder to break through the “rice” ceiling to get to where they are.
