Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has apologized in parliament for government actions a century ago. In 1914, a shipload of would-be immigrants from India was roughly handled and turned away. Simply put, the Canadian government of the time wanted to keep Canada white.
“I have to be honest,” says Sukhi Ghuman, a descendant of one of the passengers on the ship, the Komagata Maru, “I was holding back tears during the apology, just being there present inside the House of Commons where I could see first-hand Justin Trudeau giving the apology. It was amazing.”
