Grant v Matsubayashi and Tanabe

Grant v Matsubayashi, [1922] 70 DLR 553
This case was over the payments of cheques by a company owned by the defendants Tanaba, Fukanaga, and Matsubayashi to an employee, Grant. Grant was unaware that the partnership had dissolved between the defendants, and there was a question of whether outstanding debts would be paid to him. The case was decided with an allowance of 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.
