80 years ago, about 22,000 Japanese Canadians were forcibly uprooted, dispossessed, incarcerated, & exiled. The action against Japanese Canadians (babies to seniors) was a racist act not for national security. Remember so the injustice is never repeated with any other grp.

How fast could a point-of-sale program fix sidewalks in Los Angeles? On average, half of all properties in the city are sold in 12 years, so a program adopted in 2022 should repair half the city's broken sidewalks by 2034, writes @DonaldShoup

@lorene1voice The soul consoling tower at Manzanar concentration camp (1942-45), population ~10,000 in a remote desert area in Eastern California with hot summers and cold winters. Lived in cramped hastily constructed barracks & used communal bathrooms. Armed soldiers stood guard.

Omicron has now hit my developmentally disabled sister's LTC. She is 7 months post 2nd shot, even tho the community living association pushed BC public health to speed it up. Booster isn't for another week. So furious. #bcpoli

@CityofVancouver @ParkBoard - Our cultural heritage bldg & pillar of #yvrchinatown community is once again being under attack. Grateful for a gated courtyard as I can’t imagine what damages would incur if it was opened up again. The graffiti is not very welcoming to tourists

Heartbreaking. There is no other word for this @brittny_mejia and @latfoto Column One. From the writing perspective, the power comes in part from the pacing. And note the devastating final paragraph, deeply reported, understated and in Brittny's voice.

The CDC conceded on Friday that cloth masks won't protect Americans against the coronavirus as effectively as surgical masks or respirators. In East Asia, where people have worn surgical masks in public for years, it was already common knowledge.
