Question 4
The region of Kaszuby has become a summer vacation community for more recent Polish immigrants.

True. After WWII, a new wave of Polish immigrants came to Canada and discovered Kaszuby, a place with a familiarity that reminded them of their homeland. Soon after, a new Polish community began to grow in the area -- a "summer vacation community." This initially created some tensions but the Polish of the old world and the newcomers now live side by side in Kaszuby, with common roots and heritage.
