My uncle  was arrested as a German alien in 1942 and placed in a camp in Kananskies, Alberta  near Banff.

He referred to it as a concentration camp.   Now, Canadians correct me that there were no concentration camps in Canada and chastise me for using this term.

They tell me that these were internment camps.    Is this simply the use of “political correctnesees” in our language or is their really a distinction in describing these camps ?
