We go international in Episode 5 with Shane Rayman of Rayman Beitchman LLP in Toronto, Ontario. Shane discusses how the eminent domain process works in Canada, including a discussion on the right to take, the full compensation system, and interesting projects taking place in Ontario. In the Opening Statement, Jeff Mead discusses Municipal Tree Ordinances, including the recent Texas Attorney General Opinion about when such ordinances may constitute regulatory takings. Shane also gives valuable dining advice when in Toronto!
