Until I read an article in Le Journal de Montreal later that day, I didn't realize that almost every single person arrested was Vietnamese and in fact that the operation had targeted marijuana production and sale by members of organized groups in the Vietnamese community.
"Several of the accused required the services of a Vietnamese interpreter"
It seems there are two different attitudes between the papers, with the Gazette clearly omitting the fact that the organized crime rings were Vietnamese in order to remain politically correct.
'La police frappe le crime organisé asiatique'
Is it relevant to mention that the group was Vietnamese? I think so.
We often read stories of the Mafia, the Russian mob and Caribbean and Asian street gangs, so why gloss over the fact that the above crime was committed by an organized (albeit loosely) group of Vietnamese.
In fact, the police should be doubly congratulated for their good work, considering how difficult it is to penetrate criminal enterprises that are made up of closed communities that speak a foreign language.
