RT - Those internment camps certainly have an interesting history.

The one up the road at New Denver was also used to house children taken from the Doukhobor community. They were considered the terrorists in the early 1960's. The Doukhobors blew up the HV power line which spanned Kootenay lake and also bombed the Nelson courthouse in an effort to get their children back. The government finally relented after they did a nude march from Nelson to Victoria.
