Interned Japanese Canadians receive degrees

University recognises students of Japanese origin forced to give up studies during World War II.

    During World War II, Canada held thousands of people of Japanese origin in internment camps. Some of them were students who never had the chance to finish their studies.

    Seventy years later, the University of British Columbia (UBC) is trying to right what is now seen as a historic wrong.
