Priest from Japan ministered to displaced Japanese Canadians
He arrived in Canada for a three-year posting and stayed 26 years. 'He was kind of a reverse missionary. He would write his Sunday sermons in between periods of Hockey Night in Canada'
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- Upon their arrival in Canada in 1953, Paul Ken IMAI, his wife and two children constituted five per cent of all immigrants from Japan that year. In the decade after the Second World War, just 409 Japanese émigrés were permitted to come to this country.
Racial hysteria kept all but a trickle of Japanese out of Canada until 1967, when the government introduced the point system, which judges potential newcomers primarily on their labour market skills and adaptability to Canada, rather than racial or ethnic backgrounds.
A particularly dark chapter in Canadian history began in late 1941. Just weeks after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor and its invasion the following day of Hong Kong, which led to the death or capture of 2,000 Canadian troops, Canada invoked the War Measures Act and declared Japanese Canadians to be enemy aliens.
In British Columbia, where most of them lived, it meant that 22,000 persons of Japanese origin, including Canadian citizens, were uprooted. The evacuees were relocated to B.C.'s Interior, scattered about or placed in internment or work camps. They lost everything. Their homes, fishing boats, businesses and personal items were taken or destroyed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Their land was set aside for returning veterans.
Four months after the war ended, Ottawa made Japanese Canadians an offer: Be dispersed or return to Japan. About 4,000 people went back to Japan (voluntarily, the government insisted). About 9,000 settled in Ontario.
That's where Rev. IMAI, an American-trained Anglican priest, found a community still recovering, trying to make a life in the country that had treated them so miserably. Not many of them were Christian, fewer still were Anglican, but those who were encountered a gentle, compassionate man who would be a calming influence in their lives.
"They were uprooted. They wanted to go home but were not allowed," remembered Grace, his soft-spoken wife of 60 years. It was a community still in shock. Her husband "visited people and listened to them. That was a very good thing for them, to talk about it," she went on. "But maybe he couldn't do as much as he wanted."
Though small in number, Mr. IMAI helped solidify Japanese Anglicans in Toronto, Hamilton, London, St. Catharines and Montreal. As a parish priest, he conducted hundreds of baptisms and weddings, and held Bible classes in Japanese. It was supposed to be a three-year posting; it lasted for 26 years.
A much-loved pastor, priest and teacher who combined Japanese serenity with Christian saintliness, Mr. IMAI represented a distinct minority. In Japan, where European missionaries were not as successful as elsewhere in the Orient, fewer than one per cent of the population is Christian. Japanese tend to borrow freely and without conflict from Buddhism and Shinto, the indigenous religion of Japan, sometimes with Christian holidays and traditions thrown in. Mr. IMAI studied and was conversant in Shin (Japanese) Buddhism, Zen and Shinto, but never considered those as alternatives to his beloved church.
He was born of samurai ancestry in Manchuria, then under Japanese control. His father was a wealthy railroad magnate and devout Anglican who wrapped his new son in white and offered him to God's service. He named him Ken, which means "offering" in Japanese.
Mr. IMAI attended Saint Paul's University in Tokyo and studied at the General Theological Seminary in New York from 1938 to 1940. He was ordained to the priesthood at Christ Church Cathedral in the city of Sendai.
His family concedes the only gaps in his biography occur during the war years. He never spoke about them. He felt that as a Christian, he could not support war, and delivered an anti-war sermon from the pulpit in the city of Akita around 1941, only to notice a man in the back row of the sanctuary leave right after it was over. It turned out that the stranger was a member of Japan's secret police, and Mr. IMAI was drafted into the Japanese army right away.
He served in the dangerous position of scout, and saw front-line action in the Philippines and New Guinea, where he was captured by U.S. troops. Japanese soldiers had standing orders to kill themselves with a poison pill upon capture, but Mr. IMAI and a group of others didn't have their suicide pills, so they asked to be shot in the chest. The Americans declined.
Imprisoned in New Guinea, Mr. IMAI was soon shipped to a prisoner of war camp in near the town of Cowra in Australia. Located about 300 kilometres west of Sydney, N.S.W., the facility was home to some 4,000 Axis inmates. A guard from New York befriended the young priest and even presented him with a cake on his birthday. Hunger was the PoW's constant companion, and they wondered what the crocodiles in nearby streams tasted like.
The Cowra camp became famous when on August 5, 1944, more than 500 Japanese PoWs escaped, or died in the attempt. At the sound a bugle, hundreds of PoWs charged the wire yelling "Banzai."
The authorities had earlier been tipped off about a planned breakout and purposely rearmed the guards by replacing their rifles with machine guns. The gunners mowed down scores of prisoners before being overwhelmed by sheer numbers, and two were killed. In all, about 350 PoWs got away but by all accounts few of them expected to get very far. Some killed themselves, had it done for them by a comrade or were shot avoiding recapture. Within 10 days, all 230 survivors had been rounded up. For his part, Mr. IMAI did not make it back to Japan until 1946.
He took a job as chaplain at a girls' school in Tokyo. Six years later, he was called by the Missionary Society of the Church of England to minister to Japanese-Anglicans in the Toronto area, then the second-largest such community outside Japan (the first was in Los Angeles). At the same time, he was awarded a scholarship to take a master's degree in theology at the University of Toronto's Trinity College.
"He was kind of a reverse missionary," his son, Shin, said. "He loved this country. He would write his Sunday sermons in between periods of Hockey Night in Canada." It was a peripatetic congregation in those days, more recently settling at St. Andrew Japanese Congregation, located in St. David's Anglican Church on Donlands Avenue.
"There was a lot of emphasis on education," recalled Shin IMAI. "They really pounded that into us. My parents always said, and this is fairly common among immigrants, that you have to be - no insult to anybody - better than white people in order to be treated the same as white people."
Mr. IMAI maintained a resolute silence about his war experiences. But there were times at night, his son says, when his father awoke screaming.
He was appointed an honorary canon of Saint_James Cathedral in Toronto. Two years later, he and others translated Anglicanism's central text, the Book of Common Prayer, into Japanese. In her will, Shizuko MORITSUGU, the woman who handwrote the edition's kanji script, specified that a copy be placed in her coffin.
Mr. IMAI retired as parish priest in 1978. For the next five years, he served as a chaplain at a Japanese school in England, then as dean of King Alfred's College in Winchester, Wessex.
Back in Toronto, he taught Japanese Bible classes for 11 years, before Parkinson's disease sidelined him in 1997. As far as his family knows, he voiced no opinion on the same-sex controversy now tearing apart the global Anglican communion.
Rev. John WILTON, the IMAIs' own priest, said he encountered "holy ground" whenever he visited Mr. IMAI. Mr. WILTON summons a scene that is sad yet dignified. Deaf, wracked by Parkinson's, and with most of his English gone, Mr. IMAI could do little else in his final days but make the sign of the cross.
Paul Ken IMAI was born in Manchuria on November 10, 1911, and died in Toronto on November 27, 2007. He was 96. He leaves his wife Grace YACHIRO, children Shin, Margaret and Rei, and seven grandchildren.

Husband charged in wife's shooting death
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Sat., June 9, 2007
Eugena SMITH, whose husband is now charged in her death, was a sweet woman who worked several jobs and loved her little girl, Friends say.
The 33-year-old Saint Thomas resident was found dead in her Balaclava Street home early Thursday in a reported shooting.
Her estranged husband, Michael SMITH, 35, is charged with first-degree murder.
"She was a good lady, hard worker. Just a quiet person," said a friend who asked his name not be published. "Everybody misses her."
Eugena worked part time at a local Chinese restaurant and reportedly also cleaned houses. It's unclear what Michael did for a living, though they had lived in the home for about a year.
The couple had a daughter -- believed to be about three years old -- and police said yesterday the youngster wasn't in the home at the time of her mother's death.
"She wasn't there and she's safe," Saint Thomas police Const. Anders NIELSEN said. "She wasn't exposed to what happened, directly."
The friend described Michael SMITH as a "nice person" but added that in "the last few months, they had problems."
Neighbours heard him working on interior renovations until late Wednesday.
It was about 6: 30 a.m. Thursday when James MORPHY, a nearby resident with a police scanner, heard officers called to a shooting at 9 Balaclava St.
He said he heard officers say a conflict erupted when a woman told a man she was leaving him.
Investigators yesterday termed SMITH's death a "domestic-related homicide." Michael SMITH will appear in court via video on Monday.
Between 1993 and 2006, there were no homicides in Saint Thomas. But over the past year there have been three, including this latest case.
"It goes to show you that no community is immune," NIELSEN said.

He was among the first doctors in Canada to perform dialysis
Irish-born renal specialist who had trained in the U.S. introduced the experimental treatment to Kingston hospitals. Sometimes, he even built his own equipment
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Peter MORRIN was a Canadian pioneer in kidney dialysis who in 1967 performed one of the first successful uses of blood purification, or hemodialysis, in Kingston.
Although trained as a nephrologist - or kidney specialist - the Irish-born doctor did not want to get involved in hemodialysis when he first arrived at Kingston General Hospital. At the time, the equipment was large and complicated, and Doctor MORRIN maintained that dialysis would only work if applied by a properly trained team with the right apparatus. But a dramatic incident in the emergency room forced him to act before he was ready.
A badly injured car-accident victim arrived at Kingston General suffering from kidney failure, among other things. Dialysis might save him. As it turned out, an unused dialysis machine lay in the basement of the nearby Hotel Dieu Hospital. Volunteer fundraisers had donated the machine after a patient died of kidney failure and it had sat, untouched, ever since.
The trouble was, no one in Kingston was familiar with the thing - except for Doctor MORRIN, that is. Nine years earlier, he had been a member of a university medical team in Missouri that had been among the first in the world to achieve hemodialysis and he knew what he must do.
"We borrowed the Kingston General Hospital van and drove over to the Hotel Dieu where we found the kidney dialysis machine covered with dust and brought it back to Kingston General Hospital. I plugged it in, switched it on and it seemed to be in working order," recalled Doctor MORRIN in a memoir in 2004. "The operating room staff cleaned it, and we set it up in the one of the operating rooms."
It took eight hours to prepare the dialysis machine, which turned out to be tragically too long for the patient. By the time the machine was hooked up, his condition had deteriorated and he died.
"This event galvanized the hospital to establish a hemodialysis team and draw up the necessary protocols and procedures. The next patient with acute renal failure did not meet such a tragic end," relates a profile of Doctor MORRIN from the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
The next patient was another accident victim, a 21-year-old man who had rolled his car and spent six hours in a ditch before anyone noticed him. He was dying, and one of his problems was kidney failure. Doctor MORRIN and a urologist, Andrew BRUCE, stayed with the young man for six hours during the treatment. He survived.
Dialysis is used to mimic the functions of the kidneys, cleaning the blood, among other things. It is not a perfect replacement for a kidney, but treatment on a dialysis machine is enough to keep a patient alive. Dialysis can be used for patients with temporary or permanent kidney failure.
Peter MORRIN was the son of two Dublin doctors. He was sent to school in England at Ampleforth College, a Catholic boarding school run by the Benedictine Order. He returned to Ireland for university, studying medicine at University College, Dublin. In 1954, he graduated first in his class and studied in Liverpool for several months. He then went to work for two years at Boston City Hospital in Massachusetts.
After that, he moved to St. Louis, Missouri, for more postgraduate work and it was at the Washington University School of Medicine that he became a part of a team that was among the first anywhere to achieve hemodialysis. The 1958 procedure saved the life of a 9-year-old.
From there, he went on to become acting director of the renal division at the Barnes Hospital in St. Louis in 1960. Always a keen rugger player in Ireland, he hooked up with the local rugby club and it was through that connection that he met his wife, Mariella.
A year later, he arrived at Queen's University to be a lecturer in the department of medicine and to join the staff of Kingston General. After working in general medicine, he established the hospital's renal program and the nephrology division.
Along the way, he began experimenting with dialysis machines of his own. Applying what he had learned in Missouri and adding everything he had since figured out for himself, he began to put together his own equipment.
In 1965, he invented his own dialysis machine, said his friend, Ross Morton. Doctor MORRIN called it the King Med machine.
"He also had to mix his own chemical solution in a big steel drum," added Doctor MORTON, a professor of medicine at Queen's. "He put in water and added the correct concentration of chemicals. Now it's done automatically, but then it had to be done by hand."
In the end, it was not until 1967 that the Kingston dialysis unit opened. At first, it was just a four-bed unit located upstairs from the X-ray department. Today, the unit has eight nephrologists on staff and provides dialysis to 250 patients in Kingston, as well as another 100 patients in seven satellite centres and at homes in eastern Ontario from Brockville to Belleville.
Along with his specialty in nephrology, Doctor MORRIN was also a medical ethicist. From the outset, many ethical questions arose about who would receive dialysis and who would not. To be refused was to receive a death sentence.
Hospital boards made decisions on who would be given dialysis, since the machinery, the chemicals and the medical specialists were in short supply. Sometimes, hospitals would choose men over women because men were the breadwinners. It was something that always troubled Doctor MORRIN.
"In the early days of dialysis, you had to be between the ages of 15 to 45 to qualify - with no other serious disease apart from the renal failure. It was done by a committee," said Doctor MORTON. "Peter was a very fair man and worked on the basis that anyone who could benefit from the treatment should get it. He always struck the right ethical balance."
In his academic career, Doctor MORRIN started as a lecturer in medicine at Queen's in 1961, and rose to become a full professor by 1977. He took a sabbatical year in 1975-76, studying at the Institute of Nephrology in Paris.
Peter MORRIN was an outgoing man. All his life he retained the soft accent of educated Dublin, but he could mimic the many other Irish accents. If he listened to an Irishman speak, he could pinpoint the county of his birth - be it Kerry, Sligo or Wexford.
He was also a great storyteller and raconteur. At his engagement party in St. Louis he was cornered by some Americans who seemed to think all Irishmen were peasants, priests or Bing Crosby.
"So, Peter, why did you come to America?"
"Well, because the bull died."
His audience was astonished.
"Well, you see," he continued, straight-faced," I was engaged to be married to a lovely Irish girl. But in Ireland, the bride's family must provide a dowry. Then, the night before the wedding, the bull - the dowry - died. So we couldn't get married, and I had to leave Ireland."
Mariella, his fiancée, soon broke up the bull session.
A devoted family man, Doctor MORRIN was involved in the lives of his three sons as children and adults. He took up sailing, first buying a sailboat and then a book on how to sail. The family sailed out of the Kingston Yacht Club and one son, Hugh, went on to represent Canada at the 1981 world youth championships in Portugal. Doctor MORRIN was also a keen fly fisherman.
In 1995, he retired from clinical work and full-time teaching. The Peter Morrin Prize in Nephrology, established by colleagues and Friends on his retirement, is awarded annually to the fourth-year medical student at Queen's University obtaining the highest overall standing in nephrology.
Peter Arthur Francis MORRIN was born in Dublin, Ireland, on October 8, 1931. He died at Kingston, Ontario, on October 3, 2007, of injuries suffered in a head-on car accident that occurred while on his way home from a day spent fly fishing. He was five days short of his 75th birthday. Doctor MORRIN is survived by his wife, Mariella, and his three sons, Peter, Hugh and Robin.

Soldier thought he had safe job
The military photographer wanted to show the good side of the Afghanistan mission.
By Chris MORRIS, Canadian Press, Fri., June 1, 2007
Canadian Forces Base Gagetown -- A Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan when a helicopter was apparently shot down thought his work as a military photographer was one of the safest jobs in a war zone, his commander at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown said yesterday.
Col. Ryan Jestin said he spoke to Master Cpl. Darrell Jason PRIEDE about two weeks ago in Afghanistan, where the 30-year-old combat photographer had been stationed for about one month.
"He told me he thought he had one of the safest jobs in Afghanistan," Jestin said at the New Brunswick base. "So, there you go."
PRIEDE, born in Burlington and raised in British Columbia, died along with five Americans and a Briton when the CH-47 Chinook they were flying in was apparently shot down Wednesday west of Kandahar.
There were no survivors.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for bringing the chopper down. A North Atlantic Treaty Organization spokesperson said initial indications were that enemy fire caused the crash.
Roxanne PRIEDE said from her home in Grand Forks, British Columbia, that her son was eager to capture images of Canada's mission in Afghanistan.
"He really wanted to do something that would show more of what the military stood for," PRIEDE said.
"When he called us and told us he had actually applied to go over to Afghanistan, he said he wanted to bring home the news of good stuff that was going on over there -- the good things Canadians were doing over there."
PRIEDE was married and lived with his wife, Angela, near Canadian Forces Base Gagetown.
"We're very proud of him," his mother said, choking back tears and pausing to regain her composure.
"Our son was exemplary. He didn't have one black mark in the military. He enjoyed what he did because he always wanted to capture as much good as possible."
Jestin said PRIEDE was highly regarded for his camera work within the military, where he worked for various in-house publications, including Army News and Combat Camera.
The commander said he will always remember a photograph taken of PRIEDE holding the "holy grail" of trophies, the Stanley Cup, when it arrived for a brief visit to Afghanistan several weeks ago.
"That's the image that will stay with me," Jestin said. "That sort of pride and that sort of home-grown Canadian boy we're all going to miss."
Sgt. Kyle Richards, one of PRIEDE's Friends, said the photographer enjoyed shooting action scenes.
"He loved to shoot and he loved to see action," Richards said, adding that his friend had a great sense of humour.
The latest death brings to 56 the number of Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan since 2002.
