Return Of the Work Camps
Ah shades of the dirty thirties in Alberta......Company wants to set up work camp near Calgary
Back then they were called Relief Camps for unemployed single men. We would call them internment or concentration camps today. Return Of Internment Camps
However this work camp will be for new temporary workers imported to work in Alberta and then kicked out after two years.
Padrone Me Is This Alberta
Forward into the past, backwards into the future.
