Sask.-raised filmmaker Boyko explores a 'shocking' Canadian history

[ https://leaderpost.com/entertainment/lo ... 1541682216 ]

Boyko was in Grade 10 when he learned about Canada's first national internment operations. His teacher told him, "That never happened."

EXCERPT:

Ryan Boyko’s documentary, That Never Happened: Canada’s First National Internment Operations, is about the internment camps that operated across Canada during and after the First World War. Archival photo / Submitted by Ryan Boyko

During and after the First World War, 8,579 “enemy aliens” were interned in more than two dozen camps across Canada; about 5,000 of them were Ukrainian. But until quite recently, this wasn’t common knowledge. . . . .
