Decision: Appeal of three final cost awards made earlier pursuant to s.45 of the Expropriation Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 125. One issue was whether the Board was correct in making a downwards adjustment to legal costs to reflect the small net compensation awards. The court found that the Act did not permit this type of adjustment. The balance of the appeal was dismissed.
