Published on February 7, 2020

TORONTO – MPP Jessica Bell (University-Rosedale) and MPP Chris Glover (Spadina-Fort York) partnered with the Toronto Chinatown BIA to host a community lunch at Dim Sum King in the heart of Toronto’s Chinatown neighbourhood this afternoon. Municipal Councillors Mike Layton and Joe Cressy were also in attendance, along with neighbourhood residents and representatives from local businesses.

“Chinatown is one of the most iconic neighbourhoods in Toronto. Unfortunately, racism and xenophobia surrounding current events has meant a loss of visitors and business for this vibrant community.” said MPP Bell.

“We wanted to come together to enjoy a delicious meal, show our support, and recognize Chinatown residents and businesses and their contribution to our city,” said MPP Glover.
