Having been at war with Germany since September 1939 and Italy since June 1940, by the time Canada entered the Pacific War in December 1941, internment operations and postal censorship activities were well established. The physical uprooting of Japanese Canadians from British Columbia began on 14 March 1942, and civil censorship of both their domestic and international correspondence followed two days later. In this newest BNAPS handbook, author Louis Fiset tells in great detail the story of the Japanese Canadians who were displaced into the interior of British Columbia and across the country, using over 130 postal history covers and additional archival photographs to beautifully illustrate the story.
