Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to all the witnesses for appearing on relatively short notice.
Mayor Daykin, we're glad you made it through the fog, and we hope there hasn't been too much here today.
I did want to talk briefly...and this is something that I've been contacted about by many of the local municipalities in my riding. They have concerns, not only with the proposed ATR policy, but with the current policy itself.
Obviously there's no intention to give local government a veto, but certainly I've heard there is a kind of after-the-fact ATR notification when a municipality is brought in. It's almost a fait accompli, and there isn't a lot of opportunity at the early stage, as you said.
What do you think should be implemented? I know we have talked a bit about dispute resolution, but where there is a fundamental lack of agreement on whether land should come out of one taxing authority and go into reserve, how do you envision those disputes being resolved? Has UBCM, FCM, given any thought to what a dispute resolution mechanism might look like?
