Cleary et al v. Hite

Cleary et al v Hite, [1921] 3 WWR 130
The plaintiffs lodged an appeal demanding compensation for the destruction of their flax crop by the defendant’s cattle. The District Court Judge who handled the case at bar ordered a new trial. Justice McKay determined that that order would be set aside. The plaintiff’s action was dismissed, with costs, and the defendant was “entitled to the costs” of the appeal.

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.
