British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Shaw Cablesystems Limited v. Concord Pacific Group Inc., 2008 BCCA 234 (CanLII):

In contrast, in Copeland v. Greenhalf, [1952] Ch. 488, [1952] 1 All E.R. 809, a right-of-way easement over a strip of land did not give the dominant tenement the right to deposit vehicles to be repaired on the land. Such a use was virtually a claim to possession as a joint user of the land.
