Thank you. That's helpful.

Here, by contrast, one generally buys land "in fee." That means it's yours, surface, subsurface, water rights, and the air above up to a "reasonable" altitude.

Any of that can be waived by contract or deed, and there are some "easements" that allow people to use your land (generally to cross it), and "covenants" that "run with the land" (meaning a new purchaser has to abide by them), but they have to be specified in the deed and purchase contract. That and zoning (industrial, residential, mixed-use, and such) are about the only limits.

The biggest land fight we had recently was over "eminent domain." The Fifth Amendment says no government at any level can seize your land except for "public use" (and they have to pay you). 50 years ago the Supreme Court decided that a "public use" means a "public purpose" in a case over urban renewal (a position I vehemently reject). Maybe 10 years ago the city of New London, Connecticut, wanted to seize some private houses and sell the land to a developer. The "public purpose" the city cited was that the development would pay the city more property tax than the homes. To the fury of the majority of Americans, the Supreme Court held that was OK. In reaction, many states passed laws or even amendments to their state constitutions that forbade the practice.

Now the politicians have to come up with a new excuse.
Emanate domain applies here as well. Don't know the ins and outs, but it seems to have changed somewhat over the decades. Or maybe people now have a better grasp of their rights now than 70 years ago.

Cute flag. A "republic" that still has the flag of England in chief.

You people will never get over your well-earned sense of inferiority, will you?

Alberta better watch out that the Turd does not invoke the Marxist Emergency Act once again and charge Alberta with treason and promoting terrorism for daring to want to separate from Canada. There is nothing that this idiot will try and do to peacefully loving people to try and keep his dictator status going. The Turd did it to the truckers. Hey, we never know, eh?
Since he abhors and has nothing but distain for Western Canada, you'd think he'd look forward to the separation. Maybe he'd be happy b'cuz then he could command the ROC at his whim since they seem to agree with everything he does.

Uhm…doesn’t Trudeau do that now…but if Alberta separated he wouldn’t be able to get his rocks off making them dance to his woke tune.

The face of a liberal who calls himself a conservative. What a joke this so called liberal conservative has become. He needs to go, and the Alberta conservative party needs to get someone like a real conservative like Pierre PoIlievre. Just saying.

Majority of Albertans disillusioned with federal government: Angus Reid poll​



Nice looking flag, and that is about it. There are not enough Albertan's in Alberta that wants to separate from Canada. And the more third world non-white immigrants immigrate to Alberta, the less chance there will be of Alberta ever separating. They are just glad as hell to be in Alberta. They will be no doubt told by the leftist liberal, anti Alberta, Canadian eastern media that the Alberta separatist party are full of racists and anti immigrant Nazi's. Alberta separatism is the last thing on their multicultural minds. If Albertan,s really wants to separate, then they better do it by this time next month or else. there are supposedly 400,000 new immigrants coming to Canada, and Alberta this year. And there is no doubt about it as to where they will be all coming from. Not the UK or Europe. for sure. Even the crime dictator of Canada does not want any Ukranian's coming to Canada. They are just not the right color for that buffoon. Just my opinion of course. :unsure:

That dictator of ours in Ottawa has total disdain for western English speaking Canada just like his Marxist old man did also. The dictator can have Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritime's provinces. They will vote liberal all the time anyway. Sadly, some liberal people that I know here in BC do the same thing. I was told by them that their grandparents, parents all voted liberal, and they do the same thing no matter what the dictator in Ottawa says or does too Canada.

If western Canada wants to separate from eastern Canada, then they better hurry up. The third world is coming to their doorsteps by the millions every year to Canada, and it won't be long before the white folk in Alberta become the minority in Alberta. BC is now starting to look more like the third world rather than a white world especially here in the lower mainland of BC. Some cities here in the lower mainland are already or are getting very close to becoming majority non-white. We white folk are now fighting for our very survival as a majority in our own province and country.

Ya-ya I know. Many will say that for me to talk like this, then this must mean that I must be a racist Nazi. In reality, my opinions have nothing to do with racism at all, but more to do with my white instinct to survive as a white person in my own white homeland to not become a minority in my own white homeland. Just my opinion of course. :unsure:

We need a government that is for ALL Canadians and I see that with the PPC. Here's hoping that eventually, the PPC will get some seats to challenge some of the idiots we have in Parliament.

Thinking the PPC is for all Canadians is like thinking the moon is made of cheese.

Thanks for the laugh though.

At least Dixie cup makes way more sense than you ever could or ever will. Hey, I just heard that the CBC is coming out with their own brand of soup. It will be called "Cream of Bullshit" soup. I am pretty sure that you will be one of the first to go buy a few cans of bullshit and try it out, eh lefty. LOL.

You are a laugh. Every comment you make on here makes this conservative laugh at you all the time, lefty. :LOL::LOL:. Sadly, most dumb downed Canadians have allowed themselves to be swayed by lefty liberals like you, who do not want to see a better Canada. You appear to just enjoy as to what your dear Marxist dictator in Canada says and does, which is nothing to laugh at. It's more like a crying shame as to what your darling dictator in Ottawa has done to this once great nation.

So, are you now going to quit Twitter because of conservative Elon Musk taking over that leftist liberal anti-free speech Marxist social media website? Please go ahead and do so. I am afraid that Twitter will be way more for freedom of speech, and that will surely piss off lefty liberal twitters like you. Just saying. LOL.

Btw, I just read that your dictator in Ottawa went to Ukraine to hand over 5 billion of our Canadian tax dollars, I say again 5 billion tax dollars, from our tax dollars to that corrupt Nazi Zelensky. In the meantime while Canada burns that buffoon that you like to call a leader goes and tells our old age pensioners, and our military veterans, that there is no more money left in the cookie jar for you two bottom feeders. My words. But suddenly he manages to find 5 billion tax dollars to blow away in Ukraine.

It will take the PPC party to try and clean up the bloody mess that this dictator in Ottawa has done to Canada and Canadians, if they are able to get as many conservative PPC members elected to par"lie"ment. Sadly, I guess that I won't be seeing that happening anytime soon. The majority of Canadians are just too stupid to try and do anything about the bloody communist mess that the dictator in Ottawa has put us all into. I am pretty sure that you love the bloody mess that we are in, right Marxist? :p

We both know that the PPC party is the party for Canada. Sadly, there are way too many brain dead Canadians out there who still believe in voting for leftist liberal socialists and NDP communists. Those fools will never learn or get it. They truly are a bunch of suckers indeed. They must wake up every morning and kick their lazy lefty liberal; asses out of bed and get going. I could name a few here but I won't. I do not want to hurt their lefty snowflake feelings. :cool:
