Rockcliffe Landing--a home for between 12,000 to 15,000 people.

Apparently the Canada Lands Company is going ahead with its plans to redevelop CFB Rockcliffe. Before setting foot on this sacred ground, the Canada Lands Company should deposit $1.3 billion dollars into the Consolidated Revenue Fund. CFB Rockcliffe was worth $1.3 billion dollars in 1998, and prime real estate (land) appreciates in value. Keep your $27 million dollar promissory note:

 CN Real Estate, the precursor to the Canada Lands Company, denationalized a billion dollars worth of railway property; heritage railway stations were either demolished or sold to the private sector:

The Hon. Erik Nielsen was a Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, President of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, Leader of the Opposition, Minister of National Defence and Minister of Public Works. Mr. Nielsen told writer Stevie Cameron:
     "Wherever there are large sums of money involved, the crooks will come out of the woodwork" The largest chunk of money in the Canadian government was in its real estate holdings. (From: Page 268 of "On The Take: Crime, Corruption and Greed in the Mulroney Years" paperback edition,)
The Canadian National Railway, Via Rail, Air Canada...the list goes on....refused to tell Erik Nielsen how much property they owned in 1985.

The Nielsen Report can be found at Library and Archives Canada on Wellington Street in Ottawa.
According to the 1997 document "Let the Future Begin" all federal property in Canada should be turned over to the Canada Lands Company and privatized. The Department of Public Works would no longer exist:
