Violation of Property Rights
I was browsing through CTV Winnipeg and found an article about the City of Winnipeg seizing people’s properties.
The new rules say that if you have a property that’s derelict that belongs entirely to you, but you cannot afford to repair it… the City of Winnipeg can seize the property from you and give it to whoever they want.
In this instance, they’re giving it to the neighbour who wants to build a play area for foster children in his care. It’s going to a good cause, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s simply wrong for any form of government to seize property in this way.
So for those of you thinking of investing in Winnipeg property… think again. The fuckers could extend the seizure rules at any time.
