Samejima v The King, [1932] 4 DLR 246
This is the appeal of Canada v Samejima 1932 (45 B.C.R. 401). The Supreme Court of Canada allowed the appeal, finding that a deficient order for deporation that had been quashed could not be amended into compliance, as there is nothing to amend.

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.
