Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In July 2010, the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference Guangzhou Committee, in a written proposal to mayor of Guangzhou Wan Qingliang, suggested increasing Standard Chinese programming in the General Channel and News Channel of Guangzhou Television. The proposal sparked widespread controversy, met with fierce criticism in Cantonese-speaking cities including Guangzhou and Hong Kong and eventually triggering a protest in Guangzhou. In a formal response, GZTV rejected the proposal, citing "historic causes and present demands" as reasons for Mandarin-Cantonese bilingualism.show more
