Transcript of BC Japanese Internment Camps

BC Japanese Internment Camps When? February 24, 1942 Where? Bay Farm, Greenwood,
Kaslo, Lemon Creek,
New Denver, Popof, Rosebery, Salmo, Sandon, Slocan City, Tashme, Bridge River (South Shalalth), McGillivray Falls, Minto City, Lillooet, On December 7, 1941, it started when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, USA. British Columbia then were "scared" that the Japanese Canadians could be spies. Then, an order-in-council passed under the Defence of Canada Regulations on February 24, 1942 which gave the federal government the power to send all "people of Japanese racial origin" to the internment camps throughout BC. Why? CAMP CONDITIONS The camp conditions were definitely horrible. For example, at Hastings Park (the horse track next to the Colosseum at the Playland), the Japanese were forced to stay in the stables with a very unsanitary environment. How and When It Ended It ended in April 1945 and the Japanese could choose to go back to Japan or east of the Rocky Mountains. Most of them went to the Toronto area to work on farms.
