In the interview, Sid describes growing up in Vancouver. During WWII, Sid's father and uncle were taken to a road camp, and Sid and his family were moved first into Hastings Park, and later Tashme internment camp. Sid spent most of his time in the camp playing outdoors, until his father tragically died in one of the road camps. After that, the family briefly stayed in New Denver, before moving to Toronto. Struggling to make ends meet, Sid and his family worked extremely hard at several jobs, and Sid eventually went on to have a successful career as an engineer. In later years, Sid was a very active member of the Japanese Canadian community in Toronto, and played a key role in the Redress movement and the development of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. He is the husband of Marie Ikeda.
