Caselaw Update

This paper summarizes some of the cases of interest from the past 12 months. This paper does not include any comments on the recent, landscape changing First Nations cases, nor upon recent planning law case of significance. While these cases are certainly of interest (and would be lengthy to summarize), they are covered in papers contained elsewhere in this seminar book. As such, this paper summarizes some perhaps lesser known cases. While some might refer to these cases as ‘leftovers’, we hope these case comments are of interest to those working for local governments, as they cover a diverse range of topics, such as the taking of land without consent, illegal breaks to business (and the personal liability of councilors therefor), the arcane art of statutory right of way drafting and leaky water lines (and the denial thereof).
