Transfer includes letter from Thomas McNair of Edwards, McNair & Russell, Estate Agents to District Resigstrar of Titles, explaining why property was sold for less than assessed value of $18,325, "which in view of conditions now exisiting in what was formerly the Japanese section is excessive. Retail business there is practically non-existant, and rentals of the buildings which are occupied are extremely low, and little more than cover taxes [and] other outgoings. The property in question has been on the market for some years without our being able to interest purchasers, at anything like a fair price. We have had offers as low as $7500. which we felt were too low to even put before the owners. We consider that the price we have now obtained for the property is quite fair in view of present conditions, and is in line with other sales which have taken place in the district recently. The assessment is excessive."

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.
