RE: 257, 259, 267, 271, 279 Bay Street, 32-34 Tiffany Street and 107 Stuart Street
There is a long standing Council compensation resolution to be settled and a subsequent civil suit by White Star against the City in connection with the City's actions concerning these properties and White Star's former salvage business over the past decade and beyond. The City received notice on February 22, 2017 regarding White Star Group's intention to bring proceedings against the City under the Expropriation Act for compensation. Expropriation proceedings are a statutory proceeding and applying City policy to prevent a landowner from advancing a statutory right is both improper and unfair.
