Vancouver Reputation Hurt by Asian Attacks

Attacks on young Asians, including two 21-year old female EFL students, in Vancouver this year have taken their toll on the city's reputation for safety. Chinese student Wei Amanda Zhao was found murdered at the end of October, while Korean student Ji-Won Park was attacked in May and left confined to a wheelchair with brain damage. The last week has also seen the murder of a 19-year old male Indo-Canadian university student and the disappearance of a 20-year old Indo-Canadian woman. Combined with the events of Sept. 11th last year, the attacks have started to hurt the EFL business in the area, which hosts about 60,000 students a year.
