Let's not forget the Canadians with Japanses background. They where confined to internment camps during the war. They have forgiven us.

"To help their case, the NAJC hired Price Waterhouse to examine records to estimate the economic losses to Japanese Canadians resulting from property confiscations and loss of wages due to internment. Statisticians consulted the detailed records of Custodian of Aliens, and in their 1986, valued the total loss to Japanese Canadians totalled $443 million (in 1986 dollars).[15]

On September 22, 1988, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney gave a formal apology and the Canadian government announced a compensation package, one month after President Ronald Reagan made similar gestures in the United States. The package for interned Japanese Canadians included $21,000 to all surviving internees, and the re-instatement of Canadian citizenship to those who were deported to Japan.[33] The agreement also awarded $12 million to the NAJC to promote human rights and support the community, and $24 million for the establishment of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation to push for the elimination of racism. Nothing was given for those that had been interred and died before compensation was given out.

The Nikkei Memorial Internment Centre in New Denver, British Columbia, is an interpretive centre that honors the history of interned Japanese Canadians, many of whom were interned nearby."

SO, this is not an expense that we will incur as long as the sun shines, the rivers flow and the grass grows?

I am sick and tired of the whining...I wish the natives would become self sufficient and depend on themselves as opposed to depending on the Government. If they ever become self sufficient then they will have pride...how can they now have any sort of pride when they depend on others to live? Very sad....
