Mori et al v Lion Lumber Company Limited, [1932] 46 BCR 292
See Mori et al v Lion Lumber Company Limited and Yada et al (1932) [1933] 1 WWR 31-32. The defendants were accused of employing “false and fraudulent representations” to get the plaintiffs to invest in the Lion Lumber Company Limited. (292) The plantiffs’ claim was dismissed with costs. These costs were to be paid after being taxed by a taxing officer; the plaintiffs applied to have this process reviewed. Their case was presented by W.C. Brown. The defendants were represented by J.R. Nicholson. Justice Fisher determined that the application for a review should be dismissed without costs. The defendant was granted “the whole costs” of all steps taken. (293)

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.
