Scope and content

It includes the following: administrative correspondence regarding baggage allowances and restrictions as well as inspection; correspondence on the increases in applicants for "repatriation"; reports from Oscar Orr regarding the procedure; notifications regarding a strike of seamen in San Francisco, USA which caused a delay in the deportation; other logistical considerations of the Department of Labour in order to carry out the procedure; and correspondence regarding the arrangement of a fourth sailing (not all who were slated to leave on the third sailing could, meaning several individuals who were prepared to leave to Japan would be forced to wait a period of time).

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.
