Case Comment by James Steele Published in Estate Litigation Textbook

James Steele has published a case comment in Brian A. Schnurr’s Estate Litigation, 2d ed. vol. 1 (Toronto: Thomson Reuters, 2017). The piece appears in the Issues in Focus section of this textbook.  James’s piece deals with the recent Saskatchewan Court of Appeal decision in Dunnison Estate v. Dunnison, 2017 SKCA 40.  More broadly, the piece discusses whether a resulting trust can exist in respect of land under the western Canadian Torrens system, or, whether such a trust is inconsistent with the statutory concept of conclusive title.
