Date(s) 1947
General material designation
This file contains a textual record.
Scope and content
This file comprises primarily of correspondence between members of the Southern Alberta Youth Council and Kasey Tanaka, Editor of The New Canadian. The exchange is primarily concerned with an editorial on A. Gladstone Virtue, a lawyer connected to the Issei and Nisei in southern Alberta. The file also contains a list of Nisei's grievances against Virtue; it seems that a central issue was that Virtue refused to work with the CCJC leading up to the Claims Commission.

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.
