Canada social stability system in civilization, but did you ever get to the bottom, someone else’s system stability? Societies based on human rights and democracy of the people, and whether you are willing to pay the price? …
There is no happy country without national pay and let you enjoy. … If you think Hong Kong social movement is “stirring up trouble”, I tell you, Canada civil society is more mature, protest is part of national life. Toronto Metro bus drivers in their demands for better treatment, every few years, strikes, paralyzing traffic, public complaints. … Unions strike against hegemony of real estate, the people of Hong Kong were “pointless dispute” and “messing up the economy”, Canada people are used to.
Canada had already seen through “development is the hard truth” lies, and pursuit of humanity and justice. … If you hold an “escape”, because they do not like Hong Kong immigrants, only pray the system refuses to pay others, is actually a feudal society under the “people” to pray for heaven “myungeun” fails to evolve into modern society active “citizens”. Jane: “rather than going to other places, want myungeun give love to you, you should try myungeun. “Abang used to work in non-governmental organizations, which was caring for vulnerable concept moved Jane had a little accident, get the support of strangers without pay:” I live here, see justice fairly, and created a sense of Justice. I know, there will be no change, everyone has to contribute. 」
… Abang and Jane both say that Hong Kong is the place where they grew up, “house prices being down,” How can we not moved by it? Abang said: “it’s like a school old students, see alma mater, old students all want to come out and do something. 」
… Two of them seriously, if occupied Central next year, will consider coming back to join in. Abang and Jane said, before Hong Kong returning emigrants, mainly because Hong Kong make money opportunity, this time to promote their return to Hong Kong is the Hong Kong share “sense”. Comes to fight for universal suffrage for Hong Kong as a bondage, Jane said: “roads are pedestrian, shop well to Chur (fight back)! 」
… Canada and Hong Kong time difference just 12 hours, this was already midday in Hong Kong, Canada early this morning. I was wondering, Hong Kong at this moment, is slipping into a long dark night, still before the dawn of the last haze? Still, you and I and every Hong Kong citizen, create the possibility of rewriting history. // (Translated by Bing)
社會不景氣,人人都話要移民。回流香港的譚蕙芸,用自己和朋友的經驗,提醒大家做逃兵以前,應先學做一個好公民。這陣子,移民成為「潮語」。政改不順、教育制度失靈、廉潔制度變樣、生活空間擠迫,香港人面對問題,第一樣就提「移民」,似乎一走了之投奔西方文明就能海闊天空。這些論調聽在我這個曾經移民的過來人耳中,渾身不自在。

我在一九九五年隨家人移居加拿大多倫多,大學畢業後獨自回流香港。還記得,那些年,「回流移民」是「老土」的代名詞,我們錯失了香港經濟起飛,回港後要由基層職員做起,同輩卻已榮升經理。我習慣了加拿大生活節奏,行路慢吞吞,回港後被朋友訕笑:「乜你動作咁慢。」

忽然,移民由老土變時髦,香港人由看不起「加燦」(取笑加國移民用語)變成紛紛向我取經,向我請教移民資訊,令我哭笑不得。我想說,若你抱逃避香港問題的心態移民,到了彼邦發覺別人所謂的文明社會原來如此,你又可能會跌入另一種失落的循環。

「香港人只知道自己有人權,不讓別人有人權」

為了這話題,我聯絡了移民加國多年的舊朋友。這對夫婦未夠四十歲,少年時移民加拿大,在當地讀書工作結婚,沒生孩子。移民二十多年,偶爾回港探親。他們不願披露真名,我叫他們「阿邦」和「阿珍」。隨近年社交媒體興起,他們對加拿大本土以至香港政局均熱切關注。

阿珍形容,移民不是「把香港的屋企用保護罩包起來,整個移送加拿大」。關鍵是,加拿大社會安定,制度文明,但你有沒有深究,別人的制度為何穩定?別人的社會建基於人權民主,你又是否願意為此付出代價?

舉個例子,聘請外傭。香港家庭四千元一個月,就請到一個外傭。加拿大呢?這裏有最低工資最高工時,外傭即使跟你同住,每周只能工作四十八小時,月薪近港幣一萬元,額外工作要計OT錢。關鍵是,兩年後,她有權「和你一樣」申請入籍加拿大。如此條件,當地人甚少請外傭,會把孩子放到託兒所。試想,數年前公民黨在香港外傭「試爭取」居港權,香港人也喊打喊殺。阿珍批評,「香港人只知道自己有人權,不讓別人有人權」。

「文明社會之所以穩定,是因為高稅制,若有人暫時不行,社會願意照顧他,我們有安全網。」

阿珍一矢中的:「香港政局動盪,你想走;加拿大社會穩定,你想來。但有沒有想過,文明社會之所以穩定,是因為高稅制,若有人暫時不行,社會願意照顧他,我們有安全網。」加拿大奉行「福利主義」,薪俸稅連銷售稅,稅率高達五成,但對窮人和病人大幅補貼,看病不用錢。相反,「福利主義」被一些港人視為萬惡。但大家應知道,世上沒有幸福國度,不用國民付出卻任你享受。
