Ethnicity and Race


The fate of many “enemy aliens” is suggested in this excerpt from the biography of Sir William Dillon OTTER:

“Lacking direct threats, Canadians turned on the aliens in their midst, forcing the government to intern hundreds of Germans and thousands of Polish and Ukrainian labourers who happened to be Habsburg subjects…. Minister of Justice Charles Joseph Doherty* summoned Otter to Ottawa on 30 October and invited him to take charge of internment operations.”
