    Poverty Situation among the Ethnic Minorities / Dog Shelters facing a funding shortfall

    On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about living standards of the territory's ethnic minorities. The Equal Opportunities Commission is calling on the government to take steps to improve the job prospects of people from minority communities after a recent report detailed high levels of poverty. Among South Asians, the poverty rate in 2016 stood at 23 percent. Most of those affected ​​ were working in low-paid jobs. A lack of proficiency in Chinese and English in some cases was cited as one factor. So what should be done to support people from ethnic minority groups in terms of education and employment? Leave a message, or email us with your thoughts at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, stray dog shelters face a funding shortfall.

    Andy Chan’s Election Petition / Blood Donation

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Andrew Work

    On Wednesday's Backchat we talk about the ruling on pro-independence activist Andy Chan Ho-tin's election petition. The Legco hopeful was barred from standing for election in 2016 as the returning officer judged that he was not sincere in signing a pledge to uphold the Basic Law. His party had been widely reported to not recognise the Basic Law or One Country Two Systems.  What do you make of the judgement, and what are the implications for other related cases where people have not been allowed to stand - including in the forthcoming by-election?  After 9.20, blood donation.
