19.13: Land Dispute on the Banks of the Assiniboine River, Southwest of Portage la Prairie, 1988 Photograph

Figure 19.13 is a 1988 air photo of the area and it can be seen that flooding did indeed occur. Dark-toned areas 10 south of the main river channel are inundated. The land expropriated by the Province included 59 acres of the accreted land, but the farmer was awarded compensation for the land shown on the original title (the shaded area on figure 19.11), that is, excluding the accreted land.[i]
