i think that the Japanese didn't get treated fairly back then... the information i got form this video is:
- During the second World War 23000 Japanese Canadians were taken from their homes, their property was seized, and they were held in internment camps in British Columbia.
- (Earlier Dated ) For the past 2 years the national association of the Japanese Canadians have been trying to get financial compansation for that action.
- The association has asked for 300 million dollars, the government says 10 million is more like it, and it has agreed that the Japanese community as a whole should be compensated but not individuals or their families. So far not one cent has been payed out.

My opinion after watching this video is the japanese had no right or sense of freedom, they were helpless. In order to have any kind of power you needed to be a part of the government, which not everyone can be this is wrong in so many ways. I am happy that now a days things arent like this and i have always been treated like and equal.

After watching this video I have learned that the japanese canadians were not treated fairly and were punished for nothing, unless you were a part of the government. I am glad life is not like this anymore and we are treated as equals.
