In WWII, Japanese Canadians on the west coast were also interned, sent from
BC to Alberta, and all their assets sold for about 10% of their true value.
Anglo Canadians bought a lot of farmland and developing areas at 10 cents on
the dollar, and the Japanese Canadians never recovered it.  The motives were
racism and greed, not fear of invasion.
