    You CAN fight City Hall (8 minute read)

    Earlier this week, Mr. Justice McEwan of the British Columbia Supreme Court released his decision in the case of Community Association of New Yaletown v. Vancouver (City), a case involving a rezoning application, a public hearing, and a land swap deal between the City of Vancouver and Brenhill Developments.

    The result of the case is striking:  two bylaws quashed, a development permit revoked, and new public hearings ordered.  On the ground, there is an active construction site that no longer has a valid development permit, and as for the agreement between Brenhill and the City?  That’s a separate (and probably even more complicated) topic for another day.

    Today marks the one-year anniversary of the opening of Hirji Law Corporation. It was an interesting, challenging, and rewarding year. I had the great fortune to work with excellent clients on interesting files.

    Every year, BC Assessment prepares an “Assessment Roll” as of December 31, and mails out assessment notices early in the calendar year.  If you own property in BC, chances are you’ve already received your Property Assessment Notice for 2015.  Chances are also pretty good that your property’s assessed is higher this year than it was last year.
