R v Nozaki

R v Nozaki, [1926] 4 DLR 955
The appellant was charged, with: ‘fraudulently converting monies collected for another to his own use’ (956). The case ended with the conviction quashed, Macdonald CJA stating for the majority: ' in all the circumstances of this case, there being no real informant at all and no effort having been made by the Crown to obtain evidence of value, the proceedings ought not to have been taken' (957).

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.
