Strong reactions to BC Liberals leader candidate's ad aimed at Chinese voters

Some Twitter users weren’t impressed with the post, however, commenting on de Jong’s attire and focus on the Chinese community. 

Formerly the province’s finance minister, de Jong has been an MLA for Abbotsford since 1994. The Liberal leadership race comes to an end this weekend as BC Liberal Party members elect a new leader. Voting takes place by phone or by email between Feb. 1 and Feb. 3. Only members of the BC Liberal Party are eligible to vote.
