    Hey, when someone's right they're right.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

At the same time, I would love to see The CEO of Chevron-Texaco work so hard condemning the home of the CEO of Goldman-Sachs that he forgets to make a payment on his credit card.

    A version of British law that gave the king dominion over the resources of the earth still exists in Canadian provincial law. The mineral resources that lie under the privately owned property in Canada are regarded as the property of the crown. That is spelled out in the Mineral Resources Act of every province and denies private property owners the right to the resources that lie under their land. The crown asserts a right to sell those mineral rights to persons other than the landowner and without advising private landowners of its intentions in this regard.

    I'm not saying it was right, but it was legal.

    You can run into the same thing here in the States..... mineral rights are sold separately from property rights in most real estate transactions. What that means is that whoever owns the mineral rights to your property can come in and mine those minerals and there ain't nuttin you can do about it. In some cases, you may not even own the air space rights to your property…. If you don’t, the person that does can build a bridge, freeway, or a large shade over your house and again, ain’t nuttin you can do about it.

    That's what big government will gitcha. It'll be like that here in the states, thanks to some folks--whom I won't mention.

    Remember when Maxine Waters said she wanted to nationalize the oil companies? hellooooooo!!!!

    The CEO of Goldman Sachs would love to see that, too. He would cut a deal with the highest bidder quicker than you flick flies off of ****.

    This is what the leprechauns get for moving to Canada.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    That doesn't really apply in Quebec.

    Property Law - The Canadian Encyclopedia

    Quebec property law is firmly rooted in the French CIVIL LAW tradition and derives, therefore, from Roman law. Anglo-American common law has had little influence on its institutions (except for the mechanism of the TRUST and a number of security devices). Quebec law, like French law, has historically attached the greatest importance to land and rights in land as objects of wealth. Indeed, feudal landholding (the SEIGNEURIAL SYSTEM) was only abolished in Quebec in 1854, a necessary reform before the civil law itself could be codified in a modern form (1866). Land in Quebec, whether once held in seigneurial tenure under the French regime or granted by the Crown (since 1763), is now in all cases held by individuals in a "free" tenure, ie, it is held as independently of the Crown as absolutely as possible.

    The Quebec Civil Code contains the fundamental principles of property law applicable to private persons. Since 1866 it has been supplemented by much ancillary legislation regulating new forms of property (such as hydraulic power) and controlling the use of property in view of contemporary concerns (such as environmental hazards and cultural heritage). The code nonetheless enshrines 2 fundamental tenets of Quebec property law: the right of private property (private ownership of lands and goods) and, as a corollary, the free circulation of such property. The code itself regulates private property in this sense, whereas statutory legislation regulates Crown or public and municipal property to which special rules apply.
    Doesn't really seem all that 'legal' to me. It probably is but it sounds like it borders on highly unethical. It's a ridiculous attack on the right of the Quebecois to own property. Hopefully he'll take it to the Supreme Court of Canada. Though with Harper in power, I doubt they'll get anywhere.

    Imminent domain should never be used to take someone's land and give it to a private company to exploit for money.

    Sadly it seems to be the case. In area after area our Canadian brothers just seem to bend over and take every inch of the statism that is thrust on them. It almost seems to be a matter of pride, just so they don't look like their brutish brothers to the south.
    For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.-2 Timothy 4:3-4:
