Elizabeth Marshall is the 'Chair of Research' for the Ontario Landowners Association (OLA) and continues to be a strong and outspoken advocate for private property rights.
Ms. Marshall is well known throughout Ontario as a guest speaker at community events and as a frequent guest on radio broadcasts that have raised public awareness about the legal rights contained in Crown Land Patent Grants.
Ms. Marshal writes for the Landowner Magazine. In addition to articles about Crown Patents, Letters Patent, the Canadian Charter, and amendments to the Constitution and the British North America Act of 1867, she has authored a number of reports dealing with Conservation Authorities. Her publication titles include: 'Legislation Out of Control','MPAC: Its Creation and Its Conflicts'.
Ms. Marshall draws inspiration from the Nullum Tempus Act of 1769 and cites it (as well as the Magna Carta) as foundations to her research work. "Sir George, however, was not discouraged; he renewed his motion in 1769, when it was carried by a large majority, with an additional clause extending its operation to the Colonies of North America; and thus, in respect of its territorial rights, the crown was placed on the same footing as any private individual, and the same length of tenure which enabled a possessor to hold property against another subject henceforth equally enabled him to hold it against the crown…" [The Constitutional History of England from 1760 to 1860, p. 53]
Ne Obliviscaris, Veritas Vincit (Forget Not, Truth Prevails) is her motto. She credits her parents with instilling in her principles of justice, honesty and truth.
