Illegal expropriation

Is there any legality to a city forced expropriation for the benefit of a private project?

Quebec has a law called PPU
heres the website but its in french

It essentially allows the city to expropriate and sell the property to a private entity with NO PUBLIC benefit.

Does this go againsta any Federal legislation? isnt this unconstitutional??

Re: Illegal expropriation

The Canadian constitution does not provide any protection from expropriation. However, when a power to expropriate is exercised the expropriating authority must comply with the requirements of the applicable statute.
