Members of Vancouver’s Nepalese community look to help in rebuilding efforts

Global News

WATCH: The magnitude 7.8 tremor hit a heavily populated area near the capital of Kathmandu, causing catastrophic damage. Nearly 2,500 people are confirmed dead in four countries and that number is expected to climb. Canada is preparing to send our disaster response team. Jill Bennett has more.

Members of Vancouver’s Nepalese community are closely following the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake and working on ways to help rebuild the South Asian nation.

“We haven’t slept the whole night,” said Abi Sharma, co-owner of Vancouver’s Cafe Kathmandu, on Saturday. “We are first-generation immigrants from Nepal…I have 50 or so immediate family members, and I’m the only one who is here.”

There are around 2,000 people from Nepal living in British Columbia, and Sharma said many of them are planning local fundraising efforts.

“We do fundraising all the time,” he said. “There’s abject poverty…but in a situation like this, the community definitely rallies around.”

“It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him.” —Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

As a trained researcher, I take serious exception at this biased article from the Guardian. It’s an interesting read. Check it out!

via How to save the NHS – by the people who work for it | Society | The Guardian.

The Guardian article is full of bias. If you read it carefully you will see a series of political sensitive statements, and highly edited extracts from interviews.

This is neither objective nor subjective research. Ahead of the election, there are a series of unsubstantiated generalizations by the Guardian. Most importantly, the article fails to look at the alternative policies open to the political parties.

What ever happened to evidence-based reporting at the Guardian?
