My Baachan and her family moved to Toronto in 1947 where they had heard there were job opportunities. One of her daughters had found work there, and her eldest son was fed up with farming. So they moved to house with her eldest son's growing family as well as some from her daughter-in-law's family.

Meanwhile, after sending more than 4000 people to a starving war-torn country, the Repatriation to Japan initiative had been halted in response to public protest, in light of the UN Universal Declaration of Human.
