Re: Expropriation by one provincial body on behalf of another

Your posting raises an interesting legal issue regarding the validity of an expropriation. Generally speaking, a government agency cannot expropriate unless it has a statutory right to do so. However, it is necessary to first determine what the facts are. If you have encountered a specific situation where this issue might arise, legal advice should be obtained. It is too complex to resolve here.
