Quotes

"It's important to do this because it disrupted lives in so many small and large ways," said Zembrzycki. "Even those who didn't go to internment camps, a lot of these guys were the ones who built Sudbury by doing the dirty, dangerous jobs in the mines."
"The sad part was that the anonymous tip was unfounded but the War Measures Act was in effect. The Ottoman Empire was an enemy of Canada -- these men were enemy aliens."
"On behalf of the citizens and businesses of Kapuskasing and all of Northern Ontario, I commend FedNor and the Government of Canada for investing in strategic initiatives to enhance growth, diversify the economy and create jobs."
