April 22, 2012. 70 years ago today the Japanese-Canadian population of Victoria was exiled from Victoria. None of them ever returned…
Today, Kana, the kids and I were at Victoria city hall for the book launch of “Gateway to Promise: Canada’s First Japanese Community”. Gateway to Promise written by Ann-Lee and Gordon Switzer chronicles the first Japanese community in Canada…right here in lil ole Victoria. It was fitting that the history of these wonderful pioneers was launched on such an auspicious day….keep up the good work Victoria!
The book is available through Ti-Jean Press at http://www.tijeanpress.ca.
