Fukukawa v American Timber Holding Co.

Fukukawa et al v American Timber Holding Co, [1928] 3 DLR 44
Plaintiff Fukukawa, a shareholder in the Queen Charlotte Timber Holding Co, had negotiated agreements in early 1920 with a sub-agent of Lawler named Ikeda, who was listed as a resident agent of the defendant company, over tracts of timber in British Columbia. The price was agreed to be paid based upon estimates that turned out to have a discrepancy of almost one third and this is the issue being dealt with in the case, with the judgment being given to the plaintiff.

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.
