PM Trudeau Delivers Apology for Internment of Italian Canadians During Second World War: watch the live video

Today, Prime Minister Trudeau will rise in the House of Commons, today, May 27 and offer apologies to a class of Canadians for what their Canadian government of the day did to them, 80 years ago. Briefly, it declared them “enemy aliens”.

That designation caused many to lose their jobs, depriving their families of sustainable income, making their homes prone to the designs of rapacious municipal officials eager to expropriate for non-payment of property taxes. It subjected all of them to placement under police surveillance, exposed them all to vexatious and malicious ridicule and lead more than 700 individuals being interned in concentration camps without due process.

Their “crime”? They we were of Italian ethnicity. Overnight, the designation “converted” them from being valuable members of the Canadian federation to being labeled Fascists, Nazis, Imperialist…

TCDSB and Cardinal headed for another clash

TORONTO – A survey on gender and sexual orientation will be conducted among grade 9 school children at all Catholic schools in Toronto. This is what was proposed during the last meeting of the board. The Archdiocese did not like the proposal and ruled against it. Criticisms were also drawn from Teresa Pierre of the ” Parents as First Educators ” association. “While collecting student data can provide useful information, caution is needed on how this collection is carried out. Catholic schools must refrain from asking children about their sexual identity and orientation.  This is a practice that could confuse children; it raises privacy issues and concerns about parental involvement ”.

In the next edition of Corriere Canadese, we will publish a complete report on the matter.
