Japanese Canadians Honoured in Mayne Island Newsletter

Japanese Canadians were featured on the front page and lead article of the MayneLiner Magazine, the monthly community newspaper distributed across Mayne Island, BC. This feature comes in response to a field visit sponsored by the Center for Japanese Research, Mayne Island Museum and the Mayne Island Japanese Memorial Garden, which explored the Japanese-Canadian heritage and history on Mayne Island in September. The field visit featured thirteen descendants of the original pioneer Kadonaga and Sasaki families of Mayne Island, alongside the Deputy Consul of Japan, Masayo Tada. This is the first time in the history of the Mayne Island community that Japanese Canadian history was commemorated for Remembrance Day on the newsletter and will undoubtedly leave a momentous legacy for decades to come.
