BC省督给省民的一封信

乐活按语:要站起来反对针对我们不列颠哥伦比亚省同胞的种族主义和暴力行为
维多利亚日——省督给省民的一封信

您知道即将来临的星期一——维多利亚日——是为了庆祝维多利亚女王的生日吗?她在位将近64年,我们的省会城市就是以她的名字命名的。虽然她真正的生日是5月24日,但我们总是将5月倒数的第二个星期一,作为维多利亚女王和她的曾孙女(现任女王伊莉萨白二世)的象征性生日,予以庆祝。

根据您在不列颠哥伦比亚省居住的位置不同,您也许会认为这个周一是夏季的开始。在维多利亚市,春花正盛,气温和暖。在不列颠哥伦比亚省的其他角落,夏天可能还要更远一点。无论天气如何,许多不列颠哥伦比亚省的居民都盼望着能享受这个长周末。

但是,新冠疫情意味着今年的维多利亚日将与往年有所不同。不列颠哥伦比亚省居民被敦促留在家里,并在当地出游。一年一度的游行,露营旅行,家庭烧烤,庭院派对和其他集体庆祝活动都将暂停。在这场与疫情的抗争中,遵循我们卫生官员的指导至关重要。而待在家里,是对您的朋友,家人,邻居和社区所有成员的关怀的表现。

在这个充满挑战的时代,不列颠哥伦比亚省人民在生活的各个方面都应彼此善良以待,这至关重要。这可能意味着在人行道上留出空间以保持社交距离,或帮助年长的邻居买菜。这也意味着要站起来反对针对我们不列颠哥伦比亚省同胞的种族主义和暴力行为。令我极为悲伤的是,我听说在我省,特别是针对亚洲社区的此类事件正在频繁发生。

这些可怕的种族主义举动在我省无立足之地,不列颠哥伦比亚省最大的优势之一就是其人民组成的多样性。现在,我们必须比以往任何时候都更加团结,互相支持。我们必须忍耐,友善和谅解,并以各种形式反对此类仇恨。

我谨代表伊丽莎白二世女王陛下,祝所有不列颠哥伦比亚省人民度过一个和平而轻松的维多利亚日。我还要感谢我们的前线工作人员,以及过去几个月来为我省提供支持的所有工作人员。不列颠哥伦比亚省府的心和感激与大家同在。

A Message for Victoria Day

Did you know the upcoming holiday Monday—Victoria Day—celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria? She reigned for nearly 64 years, and the capital city of our province is named for her as well. While her real birthday fell on May 24, the second-to-last Monday of May always celebrates the symbolic birthdays of both Queen Victoria and her great grand-daughter, our current reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.


Depending on where you live in British Columbia, you may consider the holiday Monday to be the start of the summer season. Here in Victoria, spring flowers are in full bloom, and temperatures are warm. Summer might feel a little farther off in other corners of the province, but regardless of the weather, many British Columbians are looking forward to enjoying a long weekend.

COVID-19, however, has meant this Victoria Day will look different than other years. British Columbians have been urged to stay close to home and explore locally. The annual parades, camping trips, family barbeques, backyard parties and other group celebrations are on hold. Following the guidance of our health officials is crucial in the fight against COVID-19. To stay home is an act of care for your friends, families, neighbours and all members of your community.

It is vital in these challenging times that British Columbians extend this kindness to one another in all aspects of life. That may mean giving space for social distancing on the sidewalk or helping an elderly neighbour with grocery shopping. It also means standing up to acts of racism and violence against our fellow British Columbians. It is with great sadness that I heard of such incidents occurring with greater frequency in our province, in particular, against the Asian community. These terrible acts have no place in our province; one of British Columbia’s greatest strengths is the diversity of its people. Now, more than ever, we must come together and support one another. We must practice patience, kindness and understanding, and speak up against hate in all forms.

On behalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, I want to wish all British Columbians a peaceful and relaxing Victoria Day. I also wish to thank to our frontline workers and all who have worked hard over the past few months to support our province. The hearts and gratitude of British Columbia is with you all.
