Samejima was arrested on another warrant after his discharge, after the events in Canada v Samejima 1931 (44 B.C.R. 317) and filed another application for habeas corpus proceedings. This was dismissed by Justice Murphy, on the basis that the problems in the original warrant were remedied in this second warrant. This case was appealed into Canada v Samejima 1932 (45 B.C.R. 401)

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.
