After an appearance on B.C. Almanac, March 11, 2013

Hello Mr. Yu
I am very disappointed and concerned about the comments you made yesterday on BC Almanac.   You stated that Canada used to be a "white supremist society..." This comment was an ignorant racist generalization and I find it deeply offensive.  My family dates back far into Canada's history and and I resent you calling us "White Supremacists."  I am shocked that the host allowed this type of hate filled comment to continue on the air and that this how you conduct yourself talking about the wrongs of others.
I would appreciate a follow up to this, and speaking of apologies I think a heartfelt one it due.

And my response:
