Asian Canadians in politics

How many Asian Canadian politicians can you think of on top of your head? If your answer is a few ...or none, you are not the only one. In Canada, the Asian voting turnout is low. Also, there are only a handful of Asian Canadian MPs in Parliament. Politicians find particularly hard to engage recent immigrants in politics. In this show, host Camilla Liuinterviewed two Asian Canadian Member of Parliament, Hoang Mai and Ted Hsu, as they talk about their political life, personal interests, family background and how to engage immigrants in political discussion.
