    Oddly, property rights are still somehow protected.

    AFAIK in the U.S. you can be legally kicked out (while being paid "fair market value") if the government decides to build/expand a highway.

    Pretty much the same here Philip, but not to the extent where they build like they did their making the guys value zero. Its supposed to be for the benefit of the many but the guy in question rarely comes out on top unfortunately & the fair market value rarely includes the cost in human terms for the uprooting of a persons life and attachment to the land in question.

    It saddens me when people whose whole way of life is simply uprooted & they are told to start again. There must be a better way to evaluate this by including years their, lifestyle, age of those in question and the earning potential of whatever they own if any and a settlement based on that as opposed to market value. I'm sure someone could figure it out to a formula where people are perhaps treated more fairly?

    Thanks for your reply

    The government should have very nice way of convincing the people.
