Vancouver Is Leading The Charge By Putting Giant ‘C’ Stickers On Cars To Indicate Chinese Drivers
CTV – A car decal that resembles an ICBC new driver “N” sticker or “L” learner sticker is raising some eyebrows in Metro Vancouver. The yellow “C” stickers have the words “Chinese Driver” written underneath and they have sparked a debate: Are they meant to be funny or are they a racist stereotype?…So consumer reporter Lynda Steele tracked down the store selling the controversial sticker, the Super Garage in Richmond’s Aberdeen Mall. When she asked the retailer who was buying the stickers, she was told it was mostly purchased by Chinese people. “But sometimes we also get Caucasians buying it because it’s funny,” said the retail clerk.
