canada: Snow was knee-deep, according to Toronto Star. It was -30 C. For the five newcomers, Sandhu said in an interview this week, the country was white in more ways than one. He was 27, newly arrived in Canada from India, landing with his wife and three children in his new home of Williams Lake, B.C. It was just before Christmas 1970. It was like another planet. It all sounds to modern ears as outmoded as it is appalling. Which is not so very different, he laughs, than how 1970s Canada regarded Sikhs, widely reviled as were most people of brown skin as Pakis, their turbans and beards a magnet for attacks and venomous hisses to go home.
