Expropriation Act

Version of section 34 from 2002-12-31 to 2011-11-28:

Marginal note:Crown in position of purchaser for value

 Where any compensation in respect of an expropriated interest has been paid to a person of whose right to claim compensation the Crown had notice at the time of payment, no compensation is payable to another person, whether the right or interest of that other person is derived from the person to whom compensation has been paid or otherwise, if under the law of the province in which the land is situated the right or interest giving rise to the claim to compensation of that other person would have been void or unenforceable against the Crown had the Crown, at the time the notice of intention was registered, been a purchaser of the interest.
