Shane Rayman of Rayman Harris LLP in Toronto, Ontario joins the show to discuss a recent case out of the Supreme Court of Canada, Annapolis Group, Inc. v. Halifax Regional Municipality. Shane served as counsel for the Canadian Home Builders’ Association, an intervenor in the case. The case deals with regulatory takings, and we discuss Canadian law around such takings. Shane makes a compelling case for why someone who is not impacted by a regulatory taking should care about someone else who is, and this leads to a discussion about Canada’s non-constitutional protections of property rights in contrast to the constitutional protections of the United States.
