Perpetuities law is a complex set of legal rules designed to prevent people from indefinitely tying up land and assets for an excessive period of time so that future generations cannot deal freely with the property. But has the time come to abolish perpetuities law in Alberta? Do other modern legal rules now exist which could handle the situation better or more simply? Or should perpetuities law be retained but extensively reformed?
