42 Years Ago (1976): Provincial Lands Management Branch officials refused to renew a hay-grazing lease for a family in 141 Mile who had established a residence in trespass on the 60-acre hay-grazing lease adjoining their deeded land. Ruby Jean Christensen said the family built their home there because it was a better site, and denied it was an attempt to secure the land. Earl Warnock, the regional lands manager at the time, said a grazing lease does not permit residential use. "On an agricultural lease, you have the right to put a home on it."
