"Professor La Violette's book tells of what happened in the course of the recent war to some of the humbler victims of the aggressive policies of Japan, viz. the 24,000 persons of Japanese race whose homes lay in Canada. In describing their fate no attempt is made to pass judgement on the wartime policy of the Canadian government which required the removal from a Defence Zone in British Columbia of all persons of Japanese race and in this matter treated Japanese nationals and citizens of Canada alike". "Nor is any attempt made to pass judgement on the subsequent decision, made in the hour of victory, by which the men, women, and children who had been removed from their homes were assured that, subject to not being allowed to congregate in British Columbia where these homes lay, they would be justly treated; but were not .... To such citizens a `restitutio in integrum' was due. But none was offered". -- Preface, p. [v].

"From 1942 to 1949, a group of innocent Canadians were uprooted from their homes and businesses on the west coast, dispossessed, and forced to disperse across Canada, merely on the basis of their Japanese ancestry. Some 4,000 were even exiled to wartorn Japan. These injustices remained unresolved for nearly forty years. Then in the 1970s, a handful of Japanese Canadians began a movement to seek redress for these wrongs, through a negotiated settlement with the Government of Canada. What began as the dream of a few became a national movement that captured the attention of the entire Canadian public by the mid-1980s. The Redress Settlement signed on September 22, 1988 by the National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC) and the Prime Minister of Canada was hailed as a major victory for human rights." -- Front dust jacket blurb.

"When I saw the picture (May 2013, p. 1) and the article about Japanese Canadian churches ['Injustices toward Japanese-Canadians acknowledged', May 2013, p. 6], in the 'Anglican Journal', I just couldn't believe it. I really appreciate it and it meant a lot to Japanese-Canadian Anglicans. Thank you." [Text of entire letter.]

"The Rev. Dr. Cyril Powles, an Anglican priest, missionary and university professor who devoted much of his life to working for justice, died on July 26  in Vancouver at the age of 94. Powles worked with Japanese-Canadians to persuade the federal government to offer an apology and financial compensation for their internment during World War II. He was also instrumental in the diocese of New Westminster's recent public apology for its confiscation and sale during the war of the Japanese Anglican churches". [Text of entire article.]
"This book was prepared by Fforbez Publications on behalf of the Centennial Committee of the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster".
This book "tells the stories of [Bishop] Sillitoe and the hot-tempered Father Pat and the bishop who went to war and the man whose work inspired 'I Heard the Owl Call My Name'. It follows Primate Ted Scott through the Depression in Vancouver and deals with the 'God is dead' controversy and the ordination of women priests. As well as being a history of the Anglican Church on the southern mainland of B.C., 'Pacific Pilgrims' is a story of brave, daring and eccentric men and women and of the bishops who were leaders of this spiritual 'Wagon Train'." -- back cover.
"[W]hat I offer, cap in hand, is a story in which a few have been selected to represent the many. This is not a conventional history. But perhaps it will help to stir an interest in our ecclesiastical roots. Archbishop Gower said to me, speaking about Bishop Sillitoe. 'I love that man !' And now, so do I. And Dart and Heathcote and all the rest. They are not figures of the past; they are alive all through the diocese, and their stories deserve to be freed from church archives. Maybe this book can be used to prop open the door". -- Acknowledgements, p. 194-195.
