The Lawyers Weekly – Citadel Hill’s Decade-Long Value Battle Nearing End
excerpt from The Lawyers Weekly by Donnalee Moulton
For more than 150 years, Citadel Hill in Halifax has dominated the city it was built to protect. For over three decades, the former fortress has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors to explore its bastions, its barracks and its artifacts.

The Supreme Court of Canada heard arguments in December and is expected to hand down a decision in six months. Lawyers across the country are watching closely to see which way the legal pendulum will swing.
