#dailycolonist1915 - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago.

No significant changes on any front this week. The news from the front is repetitive and it seems the editors are aware that. no matter how important the war may be, vague tales of a few yards gained here, a few yards lost there, aren't holding the public interest and so there are more stories of local interest. It is mostly stories of the Ukrainian internment (as it is now known) and the terrorist bombings in Windsor that caught my attention this week. The stories on the Ukrainian internment are especially relevant now because the new "Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act" (previously Bill C-24) that allows for the stripping of Canadian citizenship from people who hold or are eligible to hold a second citizenship makes what went on in the internments of WWI entirely possible again.
