Transcripts available in the following languages:

I*: How did you feel about the whole redress movement, the fact that your family lost that property in Mission?

Well, I didn't think too much about it. I didn't worry about it because if we'd stayed on the farm, I guess we'd be, still been strawberry farmers. So I've been pretty lucky, that's right.

I: What did you think about the compensation that you received for that?

It wasn't very much, for the property we had. But if that's all they want to give us, well, you can't do anything about it.

I: How much did you get?

Twenty-thousand dollars. Twenty-thousand dollars.
