Property rights & environmental protection: Conflict or confluence (Webinar)

January 18, 2012 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

What does our legal history have to say about our property rights? When do we move from confluence to conflict in reaching environmental objectives on our land? Is there a place for the “public interest” on private property?

The Alberta Government has recently struck a task force to consult with landowners regarding property rights. Undoubtedly this is in response to concerns raised around the impact of the Alberta Land Stewardship Act (and other laws) on a landowner’s property rights.

This webinar will discuss property rights, environmental outcomes and ALSA in a legal context. It is an updated version of a webinar presented early in 2011 and is intended to inform the debate around property rights and planning. The webinar will touch on issues of relevance to the property rights task force and undoubtedly the next provincial election.

Join Jason Unger, Staff Counsel, on Wednesday, Jan. 18, 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm for this informative session.
