Landowners Association invites councils to discuss ' Patent Land Grants'

Share This Article

The Leeds & Grenville Landowners Association will be extending an invitation to all municipal councils of Leeds & Grenville, their staff and the general public, to attend an information session on the “Patent Land Grants”.
Elizabeth Marshall, Chair of Research for the Ontario Landowners Association, and foremost expert on Patent Land Grants, will be informing those in attendance of the force and effect of the Letters Patent. Mrs. Marshall will explain the rights and obligations of the “patentee” (landowner), as well as the effect and limitations that legislation has on patent lands. She will cite case law such as Attorney General of Ontario vs. Roundtree Beech (1994) in which the Ontario Superior Court  ruled that the Crown has no “right, title or interest” in or to the land.  We feel that under section 448.2 of the municipal act, that the province has placed all municipalities and their staff in a very difficult legal position.
We invite all to attend on Friday, March, 4, 2011, 7:00pm at the Grenville Snowmobile Club(4901 Charlieville Rd 3 miles north of Maynard).Come and find out why no ministry or municipal official has any legal right to trespass on your private property.  We are confident that you will come away with a whole new perspective and respect for the Patent Grants and the private landowner.
