British Home Children author Sandra Joyce

Beginning in the late 19th century...tens of thousands of children came to Canada from Britain. They were orphans, or their families were too poor to keep them. Some found new homes here. But many were treated as servants and farm labourers. They are known as British Home Children. Sandra Joyce has written two books on this issue, and is speaking in Calgary tomorrow night. She joined guest host Frank Rackow in studio.
