Taber, Alberta Dear Sir:
This will acknowledge your letter of December 16th. This has been carefully read and we can appreciate that the disposal of your property is a matter of great personal concern to you. However, the sale of all Japanese owned properties has been carried out as part of the policy of liquidation outlined by the Canadian Government on the basis of independent appraised values.
Your letter has been placed on our files so that your comments in regard to the sale of your property will remain on record.

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.
