Children of Redress

children-of-redressBy Greg Masuda

In 1942 the Canadian government ordered the uprooting of 22,000 men, women, and children in one of the nations’ largest and cruelest dispossessions and dispersals ever. A generation later, Japanese Canadians fought back – and won. Using rarely seen archirval footage and interviews with members of the negotiation team including Roy Miki, Art Miki, Cassandra Kobayashi, Audrey Kobayashi, Maryka Omatsu, as well as Obasan author Joy Kogawa, Children of Redress calls on today’s generation to stand up for what is right – on the 25th anniversary of that 1988 victory and beyond.
