Re: "Restaurant owner says "bananas" don't get importance of shark-fin soup"

I am a first-generation Chinese Canadian, born overseas, from a traditional family. I grew up with shark fin soup. I am in my 50s, so I assume no one will classify me as either "young" or "banana". I don't get the "importance" of it either. It is about time shark-fin soup be banned all over the world, not just in Canada. I, and my family, have stopped consuming shark-fin soup. Chinese culture is not about wastefulness, boastfulness, and cruelty, at least the one I know. [read story]
