    «The decision to intern the Japanese Canadians was based on racism and greed and went against the advice of the Military and the RCMP who said Japanese Canadians posed little threat to national security. I would remind you that Canada has it's own Supreme Court and the ruling of a foreign court should have little bearing on Canada. What was legal and illegal in 1941 is not the same as what is legal and moral in Canada today or in 1988 when the apology was issued.» — TrevorD, 13 Mar 2014

    «Why should democratic governments have to apologize for lawful measures they enact during a time of national danger? There is no presumption of innocence in war. I would hazard to say that the Japanese (and Italians and Ukrainians in WWI) were treated very humanely compared to the genocide committed by our "gallant" Soviet allies upon their own people during WWII. (Don't believe me? Read the Gulag Archipelago). The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1944 that internment did not offend the Bill of Rights. It is an ugly episode in Canadian history but let's stop the guilt trip and view it objectively.» — sixam, 19 Aoû 2013
