🚍🗳️ During the #Elxn44 campaign, there’s been plenty of discussion about how Canada can recover from COVID-19. Experts and an advocate I spoke to want to make sure one topic in particular isn’t left out: transit. (And not just because public transit starred in #ShangChi) [1/9]
“Building back better — to use what's become a slogan — involves transit, and you've seen governments recognize that,” @DrewFagan4, professor at @munkschool, says. That goes beyond funding projects and requires intelligent land-use, he adds. [2/9]
Putting what people need along transit lines results in what researchers call “transit-oriented communities.” An @ontario360 paper Fagan cowrote states such communities co-locate housing, jobs, public amenities and social services near transit. [3/9] on360.ca/policy-papers/…

The accents of Chinese in #ShangChi are all over the place. It’s like you have two characters who are brothers from Long Island. But one has a Boston accent, the other has a Texas one. It’ll be hard for any native Chinese speakers to get past that and thoroughly enjoy the movie.
But this movie was never for me. Just glad that many Asian Americans will get to love it. It’s certainly a giant leap from what used to represent the community on the big screen in the US. It was still a fun ride for me tho.
But I’ll also be super surprised if it ends up doing well in the Chinese market. Beauty standard controversy aside, to the Chinese audience, it’ll be like eating in a Chinese restaurant in America. The open-minded people might appreciate the effort. The rest of them, not so much.

.@SimuLiu on his parents' review of #ShangChi: "They watched it. I think they were just so glad, like, “Oh, you didn’t do terrible. I think in their way, they were trying to tell me that they were very, very proud of me."

In recent years, @awkwafina and @kumailn have already made names for themselves, and cracked the entertainment industry’s doors open for Asian American representation.

Now they’re taking another huge step in their careers: joining the MCU.
