Does a tenant of a property have a right to convey the property?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Webb v. Marsh, 1892 CanLII 35 (ON CA):

Draper, C.J., in Bishop of Toronto v. Cantwell, 12 C.P. 607, points out that if the person in possession claimed by any privity with the true owner, or had acknowledged him to be the owner, still more if he admits his seisin, or had entered under a contract of purchase or as tenant, he could not dispute his right to convey.
