    Surface Rights and the Business of Law (2 minute read)

    kamloops small

    I will be in Kamloops on November 13, 2014 to give not one, but two talks at the Thompson Rivers University Faculty of Law.  The first will be part of a first-year Property Law lecture on surface rights and mineral tenures, and the second will be a more general discussion about the “Business of Law.”  TRU has built a great law school and I am grateful to be invited to speak to the students and faculty about the kinds of cases that I handle, and the way that I have set up my new law office.

    Positive Covenants (20 minute read)

    As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Jeff Frame and I gave a talk at the BC Expropriation Association’s annual conference, on the (hot?) topic of positive covenants.  The paper discusses the (well established) legal principles that apply to restrictive covenants, then considers whether positive obligations can be “expropriated” from a landowner by an expropriating authority.

    Small businesses and the changing nature of project work (2 minute read)

    An article by the Canadian Press (reprinted in yesterday’s Globe and Mail) suggests that while small business activity is lagging the economy as a whole, that may change over the next 5 years – mainly due to the lack of sensitivity that small businesses have to currency fluctuations.  The article references a recent report from CIBC World Markets, which you can find by clicking here.
