Decision: Appeal by an expropriating authority from an order appointing an arbitrator to assess compensation payable to the Respondent. The Appellant had lowered the grade of Third Street adjacent to the Respondent's property. The Respondent had sought compensation pursuant to s. 394 of the Municipal Act, R.S.B.C. 1911, c. 170, but the Authoppellant denied liability and refused to appoint an arbitrator, alleging that the Respondent did not have a registered interest in the property. It was held that the Respondent had an equitable interest in the property under a purchase agreement and was entitled to advance a claim for compensation. The appeal was dismissed.
