Decision: Clarification of an earlier ruling in a dispute over ownership of land. The court found in its previous ruling that the authority had expropriated a strip of land for a road in 1984. The road had been expropriated by the publication of a notice in the B.C. Gazette as required by the legislation in effect in 1984. In the present decision, the court was asked to expand on the precise nature of the interest acquired by the authority. It was found to be equivalent to a fee simple interest in the land.
