Title Proper RG36-27 VOLUME 08 FILE 182
Date(s) 1943
General material designation
This file contains a textual record.
Scope and content
The file contains correspondence concerning minor administrative procedures of the British Columbia Security Commission. For example, included is correspondence ensuring that letters about Japanese Canadian individuals between the BCSC and Custodian's office mention only one individual per letter because the Custodian maintains a separate file for each individual, and therefore, letters referring to multiple people require the Custodian's office to make several carbon copies. Also includes a memorandum from George Collins, dated 19 March 1943, that notes that "refunds made payable to the Japanese will be cleared through the Treasury Office of this 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.
