Selwyn Court Case

In 1925, the Gatineau Power Company expropriated farms, houses and cottages along both sides of the Gatineau River for its massive hydro-electric project. Many took the sums offered by its land agent, but a few disagreed with the amounts being offered and took the company to court. One such individual was Harley Selwyn of Kirk's Ferry, a civil servant and commercial beekeeper. This is the scanned 200-page document of the court proceedings.
