Hi Anne, as you know the RDOS already consults with its First Nations neighbors on virtually all land use decisions (to the point at which their staffs are overwhelmed with paper and are insisting on a fee for all referrals).
In some rare cases (expansion of the gravel operation near Spotted Lake in Area A comes to mind) opposition by local First Nations triggered an RDOS decision to deny. I agree that better two-way coordination is desired and such coordination is identified already as an objective in the Protocol Agreement.
