On December 6, 2013, the Asian Journal published an article written by Rattan Mall which alleged that Ms. Aaron was racist and part of a white gang. There is absolutely no foundation to these allegations whatsoever, and both the Asian Journal and Mr. Mall sincerely apologize to Ms. Aaron for these unfounded accusations. Both the Asian Journal and Mr. Mall acknowledge that it was wrong to write and circulate this article, and they are truly sorry for any damage that this may have caused to Ms. Aaron’s reputation. Ms. Aaron is a fine upstanding member of the community who enjoys an excellent reputation in the BC NDP and in the community at large.
