Chinese rich second generation fined for street racing in Canada, claims “Westerners jealous of Chinese driving good cars”

In the Vancouver metropolitan city of Surrey, 13 members of a “Super Sports Car Club” composed of ethnic Chinese fu er dai were intercepted by police while racing on a busy highway and fined. But until now none of them have expressed regret/remorse over the matter.

Some of the ethnic Chinese drivers involved have described the situation on a social networking site, claiming that 14 luxury cars were headed toward a city called White Rock together. Some of the drivers were racing and local citizens reported their activity to the police. “Once we got off the highway, all of White Rock’s police came chasing after us.”

A local ethnic Chinese in the luxury car world revealed that all the cars and drivers involved in this street racing incident belong to a local “Super Sports Car Club” composed of young ethnic Chinese. Most members of this group are Chinese fu er dai. These members, while going to school in Canada, wear name brand watches worth tens of thousands of Canadian dollars and have mobile phones worth thousands of Canadian dollars. Their lives are extremely extravagant.

This person also said that when the club was first created, the members cooperated with police, advertising during their events positive messages like, “Don’t drink and drive,” and “Don’t speed in a luxury car.” But gradually, as many of the creators graduated and returned to China, some of the members refused to follow the original tenets of the club and started to race illegally. He said that these people completely ignore Canadian traffic regulations while racing. For example, this time where they used the method of “blocking cars to clear the road”, they essentially are using methods of illegal street racing that occur domestically in China, except in China, no one would street race during rush hour.

“We aren’t trying to show off anything, much less lose face for us Chinese!” While recounting the event, many of the involved drivers did not express regret/remorse. Some drivers went as far to say, “Laowai are jealous of Chinese people in fancy cars,” and “The police lack money.” They claim that they were not speeding at all, saying if they really were going 200km/h like people say, then their fine couldn’t have been just 196 Canadian dollars.

According to a report in Mingpao Daily, a couple was smiling and taking pictures in front of their beloved cars while the police were towing them away. They meant to keep it as a souvenir and wrote on the picture, “Cars were towed; we express our ‘happiness.’ ” Another driver also took many pictures while his car was being towed. He emphasized: “Proof of my being wild in my youth. I’ll show my kids and grandchildren someday, tell them that daddy was wild once.”

What do they envy of yours? There’s plenty more people richer than you. They pulled you over because you disobeyed the law. You don’t realize you’ve done something wrong and even argue. Losing face for the entire Chinese people. Bah!

中国恶人:

If all of China’s officials and rich people could immigrate to Canada, how clean this land would be!

芸芸众生123:

Chinese fu er dai who are rotten to the core are the scourge of the entire earth!

wania0204:

Look at what we Chinese citizens do when we have money: immigrate, flaunt our wealth, become playboys….. A country with these problems must have forward-looking legislation. Prevent money from flowing out of China, prevent rich people from being corrupted by wealth.

不战则败:

Disgusting parasites!

hyy9904:

Canadian police should jail them for a hundred years for jeopardizing public safety and help this society by castrating all of them so future generations won’t have idiots.

ZGONGGUODAYE:

Westerners don’t care what your daddy does in China! Serves you right! You should have died in an accident!

haerbinbeer:

Check what the daddies of these fu er dai do.

hengle:

Rich second generation, corrupt second generation. [Note: “Rich” and “Corrupt” in Chinese are near homonyms.]

山河依旧人空瘦:

What we Chinese lack is awareness of obeying rules. What’s funnier is rich people trying to gain face for China by breaking the rules!

RCMP Supt. Norm Gaumont: "I know there's a lot of disappointment, wondering why we only charged them with an offence of $196. They fact of the matter is, we have to look at all the evidence we have and what we're able to prove."
