Japanese Internment Camps

By: Aidan Grewal

All Japanese Canadians are currently undergoing a tricky situation,

just based on their race. Most not if all are being threatened due

to issues surrounding them which are out of their control. The

Canadian government has put the Japanese Canadians in Internment

camps, which seems wrong, but they are doing the whole country a

favor in my opinion by not risking the chances of the Japanese

Canadians being spies and giving valuable information to Japan to

invade Canada. They are also, protecting the Japanese Canadians and

ensuring their safety because many racist Canadians were attacking

them before being put in the camps for being “threats to society.” The

Canadian government has done the right thing to make sure everyone

feels safe and are protected while everyone is going through terror and

fears of an invasion by Japan.
