19.12: Land Dispute on the Banks of the Assiniboine River, Southwest of Portage la Prairie, 1959 Photograph

Figure 19.12 is an air photo that shows the situation in 1959, before the Portage Dam was built. Meander scrolls 9 are visible south of the river. Over the years the farmer brought land accreted in this area into cultivation. However, in connection with the building of the Portage Floodway, the Province of Manitoba expropriated part of his land because it was expected that it would be flooded by backwater behind the dam.
