Mr. Hisajiro Shikatani
Reg. No. 03187
Lemon Creek, B.C. Dear Sir:
Your letter of February 25th has been received. Your comments in regard to your missing radio have been noted and your letter has been placed on record.
Yours truly, Protection Department
(This letter and the attached copy of letter from Hisajiro Shikatani refer to a Marconi Mantel Radio, Serial No. 207, turned over to the Custodian by the R.C.M.P. and stored at 992 Powell Street , on July 11, 1944. When radios stored at 992 Powell Street had all been sold or returned to their owners, this radio was among those that had not been accounted for, and it is assumed that this radio was stolen during a break-in. On October 1, 1945, we notified the Vancouver Police that this radio had been stolen. Our letter was acknowledged. We have received no further information from the police in regard to stolen radios and cameras.)

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.
