OPP tell CANACE: Land Title deeds do NOT prove ownership

13 07 2008
UPDATED 1100 EST July 23/08

This article is based on an inquiry from a reader, Jim Edgeworth, regarding a CANACE report for which we had yet to post the supporting video evidence. Thank you for your inquiry, Jim. Readers can obtain additional background information from the reference links at the end of this article. 

“I saw an article that quoted an OPP officer as stating ” The Ontario Land Registry is not considered proof of ownership by the OPP. I would like to track that down.

“If true it is a interesting situation. Why register any property with the Ontario Gov.? The Banks will need to review all loans that are secured with Real Estate. The Ontario Gov. will sooner or later exhaust all places to hide from doing the job they were elected to do. The USA is in a mortgage meltdown, Canada could do better with this!”

CANACE REPLY: Hi Jim. Thank you for the inquiry. Yes, it’s quite true.
