Italian Canadians Receive Official Apology

After Italy allied with Germany in 1940, 600 Italian-Canadians were interned in camps in this country, while approximately 31,000 others were declared “enemy aliens,” prompting mistreatment and discrimination including fingerprinting and having to regularly report to local registrars.

Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau formally apologizes for the injustice to the Italian Canadian people & their families.
