In re Nakauchi Estate

Re Nakauchi Estate, [1927] 2 WWR 607
Justice Taylor determines that more evidence is required “to justify” granting Nakauchi’s widow her infant children’s shares of her husband’s estate. (608) Nakauchi’s wife was at the time of the application intending to return to Japan with her children. Taylor wanted “something to indicate firm surety that the infants’ money will remain available for them on majority.” (608) The costs of the case were taken out of the estate. The option of providing the needed evidence and having a rehearing was presented.

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.
