I think there is always going to be the potential for delay. I don't think there's a one-size-fits-all solution.
I talk about proportionality. If you have a willing seller.... So we're talking about fee simple and of course the crown purchasing that land and turning it into a reserve, and there aren't those potential impediments in terms of third-party interests or needing to talk to the province or the municipality. The policy needs to address those sorts of issues, or small areas that are being returned to reserve.
In B.C., we had the cut-off claims settlements. We have a history of lands that were pre-empted by churches, as does Ms. Crowder's constituency. Those take the same amount of time as the ones where you have hydro lines running through them and having to deal with the municipality for services.
It's trying to have a policy that is flexible enough to address the easy ones. You don't have to call it an expedited process, but having that policy guidance to say, on this one, we can just barge ahead. We don't need to go through all of the 13 steps set out in the policy to make it work.
