Vancouver Salt Co. v R. Tabata and Co. (Trustee of), [1933] 1 WWR 29
The Vancouver Salt Company Limited appealed to the Court for a decision regarding its security upon and entitlement to a delivery of 200 tons of salt from R. Tabata and Company, a bankrupt firm in debt to the former. Justice Fisher determined that the ownership of the salt had in fact transferred to Ritherdon Bay Packing Company Limited, which was not party to the proceedings. He dismissed the appeal.

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.
