2017 marks the 150th Anniversary of Canada. It also happens to be the 75th anniversary of Bryan's grandparents being sent to work on the sugar beet farms of Alberta during the Japanese Internment camps during World War II.

This week, we hear Bryan conversation with his grandparents, Gen & Gene Miki, recorded at their Hamilton home in August 2011.

We're off for a little break, but will be back in February!

All recent photos captured by Connie Tsang. For more on her and growing up Chinese-Canadian in small town Canada during the 1970s, listen to our first episode.
