To enact its grandiose plans, the NCC has no qualms about using every means at its disposal, and has presented many an object lesson on the virtually nonexistant property rights of the average Canadian citizen. In the 50's, the NCC expropriated vast acreages in the Ottawa region; it's still flipping the land at a hefty profit today. Have you been thrown off your land, only to have the NCC turn around and sell it to a developer for big bucks? We'd like to post your horror stories here.
