Overview

A Bare and Impolitic Right: Internment and Ukrainian-Canadian Redress by Bohdan S. Kordan, Craig Mahovsky

Few people know that civilian enemy aliens were interned in Canada during World War I, and if they learn of it assume it was justified, legitimate, and legal. Kordan (political studies, St. Thomas More College) and Mahovsky, a policy analyst for the government of Alberta, say it was not. They prepared a position paper in 1999 commissioned by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress concerning redress for Ukrainian internment, and here rework and augment it for a wider readership.
