Taken abruptly from their homes and travelling in cattle cars under horrendous conditions, they went to far off labour camps. Many of them have no graves to call their own, and it's our moral duty to honour them with a memorial in Ottawa.

Thus, they were undesirable elements, "enemies of the people," is how a devout communist might have put it.
