The province is calling for nominations of Japanese-Canadian historical sites to receive official recognition.
And one historian says there’s no shortage of worthy candidates in West Kootenay/Boundary.
Chuck Tasaka grew up in Greenwood and says as a former interment centre the entire city deserves inclusion.
Tasaka says former internment camps in the Slocan Valley and Kaslo merit consideration as well.
The nomination deadline is Sept. 9.
