Muskoka RIVERFRONT COTTAGE ROAD WAR revives past struggle against UNLAWFUL SHUTDOWN 2019/07/05 23:15  
A Muskoka resort owner's campaign of road shutdowns & alleged obstructions against offsite cottagers, appears to have reached the civil justice system once again.

In 2005 Ontario's Court of Appeal had punished the resort owner's attempts to pre-empt a different cottager Mrs Ramsay's easement rights under the Registry Act. This judgment ( & its policy & legislative aftermath ) led to a major re-examination of what it took to revitalize expiry-prone rights of ways under the Province of Ontario's Registry Act.

( Most of these environments are believed to be converted into qualified land titles scenarios also subject to expiry unless renewed. These are major building blocks of covenant-linked non-condo communities, but also have application to commercial property issues. )

But ole' habits on this Muskoka road may apparently die very hard . . .

A different group of five cottage owners has had to return.

They here obtain an injunction to halt a campaign of disturbing shutdowns & alleged obstructions attempting to undermine the sole land-based access for those cottages.

One such had been registration of a bizarre self-deed to purport to strip the easementers of the year-round travel rights here confirmed. ( Self-deeds can be notorious "bad faith" tools to undermine covenant rights. One such is torpedoed here )

Media records provide a shocking series of other background events.

The judgment withholds contempt of court measures sought for the extended series of obstructions.
