Correspondence Regarding New Education Tax


Title Proper F0 GR0419 BOX 570 FILE 003
Date(s) 1947
General material designation
This file contains a textual record.
Scope and content
Buried in an extensive file containing records concerning the new school system and associated tax regions, is correspondence between Laura Henshall and J.T. Clark, Surveyor of Taxes. Henshall complains that her property at 1051 Rendezvous Island is not near any public school and that she teaches her school-age child herself; therefore she should be exempt from the new education tax. Of interest to LOI is the fact that she bought the property from the Custodian of Alien Properties and received title in July 1946.

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
