#My Baachan 42. Resettling


Many other people of Japanese descent besides my Baachan moved to Toronto. They did not form neighbourhoods as  they had in British Columbia, either to avoid making themselves easy targets again and part of a concerted effort to blend in. At the same time, they formed community organizations, such as t he Japanese United Church, which Baachan enjoyed attending.
