The Alliance of the Guard of Canadian Values started this petition to Vancouver Mayor and City Councillors

A 67 anniversary China National Day flag-raising ceremony was held in Vancouver City Hall at 11am on September 30, 2016. Kerry Jang, a Vancouver City Councillor and acting Mayor, hosted this gathering, raised a China national flag on the municipal flagpole wearing a red scarf. As a municipal councillor and acting Mayor, Kerry Jang raised a foreign country‘s national flag in front of the Vancouver City Hall, we think this is absolutely unacceptable. The red scarf he wore during that ceremony has a strong political implication, meaning the struggle for communism. This flag raising farce telling us that Councillor Kerry Jang lacks basic common sense as a politician in dealing with relationship with a foreign government. His act as a city councillor during this ceremony shames the whole city of Vancouver. We request councillor Kerry Jang to apologize for his misconduct and explain how this ceremony was organized; we ask for the resignation of Kerry Jang as a Vancouver City Councillor; we also request Vancouver City Mayor Gregor Robertson to explain how this ceremony happened and if he supported this event.
