Conds v Kabota

Conds v Kabota, [1925] 25 BCR 506
Conds took Kabota to court to claim damages for wrongful dismissal. This was dismissed in the Country Court of Vancouver; McDonald J stated that this application was not within his court’s power to grant, after which Conds tried to secure a mandamus to compel another hearing. His case was presented by H. Bray. Justice McDonald dismissed the action, re-stating the previous judge’s reason for this response.

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.
